February 24, 2009, Guelph, Ont. – Valent Canada has registered flumioxazin, the new active ingredient in several of its new herbicides, with Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency.

Flumioxazin is a member of the protox inhibitor type of herbicides (Group 14), which offers management options for weeds resistant to Group 2 and Group 5 herbicides. Flumioxazin provides residual weed control and burndown when tank mixed with glyphosate. Flumioxazin works by inhibiting production of an enzyme important in the synthesis of chlorophyll.
