MAI (Makhteshim-Agan Industries) gains US generic paraquat approval:

Makhteshim-Agan Industries (MAI) has received US approval for the non-selective herbicide/desiccant, Parazone 3SL (paraquat dichloride), for use on over 100 crops. The 3 lb/gallon (360 g/litre) formulation is a generic version of Syngenta's established Gramoxone Max. Parazone 3SL provides fast, effective, broad-spectrum weed control, MAI claims. The formulation is 50% more concentrated than the leading brand, the company adds. Syngenta introduced a 2 lb/gallon formulation, Gramoxone Inteon, in 2005. Cheminova has also received US approval for generic paraquat in line with the original formulation (Agrow No 503, p 18).
