The European Commission has approved the registration for Corteva’s herbicide active ingredient florpyrauxifen-benzyl (Rinskor) for ten years, starting from 24 July 2019. 
According to the Commission, the member states shall pay particular attention to the protection of aquatic and terrestrial non-target plants. Conditions of use shall include risk mitigation measures such as buffer zones and/or drift reduction nozzles, where appropriate.
Rinskor is a rice herbicide that provides a sustainable solution for rice farmers to control grass, broadleaf and sedge weeds. Corteva received a 2018 Green Chemistry Challenge Award for Rinskor.
Launched in the U.S. market in 2018, Rinskor active has favorable human health and environmental profiles, with low persistence in soil and water and low toxicity to other organisms such as birds, insects and fish. Rinskor active has low use rates, which are up to 153 times lower than other commonly-used rice herbicides, pose minimal risk to farmers, applicators and to other non-target animals and plants when used according to the label recommendations. Last month, Brazil Anvisa just approved Rinskor.
