Dow launches Spitfire in UK

Dow AgroSciences has launched a cereal herbicide, Spitfire (florasulam 5 g/litre + fluroxypyr 100 g/litre) in the UK. It is for the control of broad-leaved weeds in all winter and spring cereal crops except durum wheat. The suspension emulsion formulation comes in a 5 litre pack and is recommended for use at a maximum application rate of 1 litre/ha. With the two active ingredients’ different modes of action, Spitfire will help reduce the risk of herbicide resistance building up in target broad-leaved weeds, Dow says. The company expects to launch the same formulation in other countries over the next year or so under different brand names, it told Agrow.
