Cheminova to seek US/Canadian OK for pethoxamid

Cheminova plans to apply for US and Canadian approval for the established herbicide, pethoxamid, later this year, with commercialisation expected in late 2017. It is developing the herbicide as a solo product and in combination with other active ingredients for use on crops such as maize, soybeans, canola, cotton, rice and sunflowers. Pethoxamid is a chloroacetamide herbicide that will help growers control herbicide-resistant weeds such as Palmer amaranth and waterhemp (both Amaranthus spp) and other important broadleaf and annual grass weeds, Cheminova points out. It can be applied pre- or post-emergence. Pethoxamid originated from Japanese company Tokuyama and was developed for the EU maize market by Germany company Stahler. Cheminova acquired a 50% stake in Stahler in 2008 and subsequently acquired all outstanding shares. Pethoxamid received full EU approval in 2006.
