EPA PROPOSES REGISTRATION OF NEW HERBICIDE TO AID IN RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

The EPA is proposing to register a new contact herbicide to help manage weed resistance.

Tiafenacil, by LG Chem, is proposed for pre-plant and pre-emergence burndown use in corn, cotton, soybeans and wheat and post-emergence burndown in grapes as well as fallow and non-crop areas.

EPA expects the herbicide to be useful for herbicide resistance management as it provides an alternative for controlling glyphosate-resistant palmer amaranth, marestail and waterhemp.

The agency has not identified any dietary, residential, aggregate, or occupational risk of concern for human health. Public comment on the proposed decision is open until August 30th.
