US approval for pyrosulfotole
Bayer CropScience has received its first global approval for the cereal herbicide, pyrosulfotole, in the US. The registration will allow Bayer to launch the herbicide, as Huskie (pyrosulfotole + bromoxynil + safener), in spring 2008. Pyrosulfotole has been undergoing a joint review by the authorities in the US, Canada and Australia. Approvals in Canada and Australia are expected later this year.
