Bayer launches Laudis in US
Bayer CropScience has launched its maize herbicide, Laudis (tembotrione 420 g/litre), in the US. The post-emergence herbicide was approved for use on maize, sweetcorn and popcorn last year ( Agrow No 534, p 18). Tembotrione received its first global approval in Austria in 2007 ( Agrow No 513, p 17). The herbicide has also been registered in Hungary. Approvals in all key maize markets are expected within two years.
