The Chinese are never to be out guessed. At a time when the government of China is routinely delaying the approval of seed traits and some product chemistry, we get notice from Dow AgroSciences LLC that China has given registration to Arylex active herbicide.

It isn’t like China is following the lead of other nations. No, the Chinese in this case are being the leader and first country to give registration to this low-use-rate herbicide, “which is an innovative weed resistance management tool from a novel area of chemistry,” according to Dow AgroSciences.

Why seems to be a logical question by onlookers? There is speculation that China is concerned with the extensive and expanding herbicide resistant weed populations in cereals production. Therefore, this product could be of great value to Chinese farming operations, especially as one component of a new cereals herbicide for use in China.

Dow AgroSciences in announcing the registration of Arylex noted, “It will provide a welcome solution for managing hard-to-control broadleaf weeds with utility in multiple crops. Specifically, the company received the Chinese registration of Quelex herbicide, a combination of Arylex plus florasulam for use in cereals.”

Dow AgroSciences’ touts itself as having a leadership position in the cereal herbicide market segment, not just for China. “Our customers will benefit from this innovation to help protect their cereal crops which are important to feeding a hungry world,” said Pierre Flye Sainte Marie, global leader, EMEA and Asia Pacific, Dow AgroSciences.  

Dow is anticipating registrations of products with Arylex in 2014 and beyond in all major cereal herbicide markets including Canada, where the regulatory process is nearing completion, as well as in Australia, the United States and most European countries.
