Flumetsulam in the product Broadstrike Herbicide

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has before it an application from Dow AgroSciences Australia Limited to change the label of Broadstrike Herbicide, containing 800 g/kg flumetsulam. Broadstrike is currently approved for use on cereals, lucerne, pulses and pastures for the control of various weeds. The applicant is seeking to include application rates of up to 40 g ai/ha for use on pastures and for pre-emergent control of volunteer cotton (including Roundup Ready cotton) in pigeon pea refugia. No changes are proposed to the use on fenugreek, lathyrus, lucerne or serradella. No changes to the MRL Standard are required to support the use in pigeon pea refugia and that use will not be considered further.
