US approval for Syngenta's Axial TBC
Syngenta has received US approval for the herbicide, Axial TBC (pinoxaden 92.7 g/litre + Dow AgroSciences’ florasulam 7.7 g/litre), for use on wheat and barley. The herbicide provides post-emergence control of a range of grasses and broadleaf weeds at 8.9 fl oz/acre (0.7 litre/ha). Syngenta has exclusive third-party rights to florasulam in US cereals. It introduced Orion (florasulam 4 g/litre) last year and recommended it as a mixing partner with Axial XL (pinoxaden 50 g/litre – Agrow No 540, p 22).
