Weed Control Containing Isoxaflutole Not Permitted in Wisconsin
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/20/2020
The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture issued a reminder this week that corn growers may need to use an alternative herbicide to combat weeds. The agency says two products containing the active ingredient isoxaflutole are currently pending renewal from
the Environmental Protection Agency for use in Wisconsin, which means they are not legally permitted for use in the state.
On February 15, the following registrations expired for these isoxaflutole products produced by Bayer CropScience: Corvus (EPA Reg No. 264-1066) and Balance Flexx (EPA Reg. No. 264-1067). Use of these products without the Wisconsin Product
Bulletin is in violation of the product Section 3 label and is not permitted under federal regulations.
Once the products are renewed, the DATCP will update the state pesticide database at https://www.kellysolutions.com/wi/pesticideindex.asp. A reminder that pesticide dealers and applicators should check the database prior to selling or using a pesticide and to
use products in accordance with label requirements.
