Dow AgroSciences has a new herbicide active ingredient in development for cereals, which could receive regulation later this year and be on the market in time for the 2015 crop season, says Abe Smith, market development specialist for the company. Branded Arylex, it’s Dow’s first new active ingredient for winter wheat since 2007.

"The whole industry has been responsive about using multiple active ingredients as a resistant management tool," Smith says. "That’s one reason Arylex won’t be sold on its own—it will be paired with other active ingredients to heighten resistance management."

Arylex is the first member of a new structural class of synthetic auxin herbicides. Smith says the molecule will be classified as a Group 4 herbicide, the same category as 2,4-D and dicamba. It will be labeled for a variety of broadleaf weed species, he adds.
