A one-shot, broad-spectrum paddy herbicide with tefuryltrione as its single active ingredient, jointly developed by Bayer CropScience, Hokko Chemical Industry and the National Federation of Agricultural Co-operative Associations, or Zen-Noh, has been registered as a pesticide in Japan.

A market launch is planned for the herbicide, given the AVH-301 code, which will be available in the granule, jumbo-granule and flowable formats and can be used in single-component or mixed formulations, the partners said.

With just tefuryltrione, a triketone herbicide that destroys weeds by inhibiting an enzyme for plant-pigment synthesis called 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase, AVH-301 is effective against both annual and perennial weeds, including those in the Cyperus microiria family and those that are resistant to sulfonylurea herbicides. Wide-spectrum, single-component paddy herbicides are sought after by rice farmers who desire weed management with less pesticide use.

Competition is keen in his market, however. Kyoyu Agri and Dow Chemical Japan have already put similar herbicides on the domestic market, and Kumiai Chemical is likely to register one by the end of this year while Syngenta Japan and Sumitomo Chemical have filed an application for their product.
