Turkey approves Dow’s pyroxsulam
Dow AgroSciences has been granted registration in Turkey for its cereal herbicide, pyroxsulam. The active ingredient has been registered for use on grasses and broad-leaved weeds. Dow is marketing the herbicide as a straight formulation, Perun (pyroxsulam 7.5%). The registration came in October 2008 and is the first for the ai in Europe, while the UK is the first EU member state to approve the ai (see this issue). Pyroxsulam was first registered in Chile in 2007.
