BASF submits regulatory filing for two new herbicides




BASF SE has started the global registration initiatives for two new herbicide active ingredients. The company submitted the regulatory dossier for Luximo herbicide in the European Union (EU) and in Australia and for Tirexor herbicide in Australia as well.
These steps are important milestones in expanding BASF’s global herbicide portfolio. The two compounds have demonstrated excellent performance against a broad range of difficult-to-control grasses and broadleaf weeds and are expected to help growers worldwide successfully safeguard their crops while managing the ongoing challenge of herbicide resistance.
Luximo is the breakthrough herbicide at the heart of complete grass weed management programs. The active ingredient provides pre-emergence, residual control against a broad range of grasses, including difficult-to-control blackgrass and ryegrass in winter cereals. The molecule boasts a novel mode of action that controls grasses that have developed resistance. With no known cross-resistance, Luximo strengthens existing integrated weed management systems for sustainable resistance management.
Tirexor is a new protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPO) inhibitor herbicide offering the unique capability to control PPO-resistant weeds including tough-to-control pigweed and ragweed species. The new herbicide is fast-acting, with foliar effects that can occur in as little as one day.
