19-Apr-2011 - Germany

The non-selective herbicide Alion® (active ingredient indaziflam) from Bayer CropScience has been granted regulatory approval in the United States by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Alion® was developed primarily for use in perennial crops such as citrus, tree nut, grapes, pome and stone fruit. The market launch of Alion® in the United States is planned later this year. Bayer CropScience anticipates global annual peak sales of products based on indaziflam of more than EUR 150 million. Further registrations for Alion® are expected in Central and South America in 2011.
