FMC Corporation has received registration for a new herbicide active, bixlozone.

Branded Isoflex® active, FMC claims it is a novel herbicide classified by the Herbicide Resistance Action Committee (HRAC) as a Group 13 herbicide.

FMC northern europe business director John Hutton said: “Over the last three years, Isoflex® active has been tested and trialed extensively with growers, distributors and industry bodies on key crops across Great Britain.

“Bixlozone has demonstrated an ability to be a significant component of an integrated weed management programme and is expected to help growers manage herbicide resistance.”

FMC state that bixlozone has exhibited pre-plant, pre-emergence and early post-emergence selectivity in major crops across the globe, including cereals, potatoes, oilseed rape and pulses.

Studies have shown that Isoflex active offers effective control of challenging annual grass weeds and key broadleaf weeds. Research on the use of Isoflex active in additional crops and segments in Great Britain is ongoing.

John says the registration of Isoflex active demonstrates the strength of FMC’s robust pipeline and will help growers meet the challenge of enhancing productivity and crop resilience. “FMC is committed to discovering and developing innovative solutions that help growers protect their crops and optimise yields.”
