The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has before it an application from Nufarm Australia Limited, to register the new product Nufarm Tazer Xpert Fungicide. The product contains 80 g/L azoxystrobin and 31.25 g/L epoxiconazole and will be used to control various diseases on wheat, barley and oats.
Use of epoxiconazole on wheat barley and oats will be the same as currently registered for other products and appropriate MRLs are established. Azoxystrobin is currently registered for use on wheat and barley at the same rates as proposed in conjunction with a 6 week harvest withholding period and a 21 day grazing withholding period. Additional residue data have been provided to support the use of azoxystrobin on oats and allow the establishment of an appropriate MRL.
