Yifan Biotechnology Group
was granted the registration of its herbicide flumioxazin 480g/l SC (in Chinese trade name SUQU® and English named AGILESHOTTM
), from ICAMA, Chinese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, on January 20, 2020. The registration certificate number is PD20200042, being approved for application to annual weed control in soybean field.
Flumioxazin is a contact-acted selective herbicide. After it is applied to soil surface, the agent is absorbed by soil particles, forming a treatment layer on the surface of soil particles. After the germination of weeds, the weed seedlings will die out after contacting the treatment layer.
This is the first time registration of flumioxazin SC in China, filling up the gap of the Chinese market, which is currently dominated by powder and water dispersible granule solid forms in China. The product has a bright future prospect, being featured with the following advantages:

- An SC agent, with fine particle and good dispersity, which is convenient to premixing for easy use, and showed better efficacy than solid formulation.
- Low dose rate, using water as solvent, which is more user-friendly and environment-friendly.
- Broad herbicidal spectrum, especially against the worst broad-leaved weeds such as the redroot amaranth in Northeast China.
- High-efficient and long-lasting effect, being safe to after reap crops.
It is said that the product will be officially launched in March this year. As a safer and more convenient solution to weed control, it has the flexible use for crop rotation, which will provide a strong safeguard for increase of yield and income in favor of growers. Yifan Biotechnology Group is at the same time planning release of the product to the international market to facilitate overseas soybean growers to control glyphosate
-resistant weeds.This product is also showed the application prospect in paddy field, and the related trials are conduted in China and Southeast Asia.
