Monsanto's Nemastrike technology approved by EPA
Monsanto Company has announced that the U.S. EPA issued registration for tioxazafen, which is branded as NemaStrike Technology. This approval will enable farmers to realize the nematode control benefits of the technology in 2018, pending state approvals.
NemaStrike Technology, a nematicide that will be offered as part of Acceleron Seed Applied Solutions, will offer a novel mode of action that stays in the root zone where nematodes attack. NemaStrike Technology will provide broad-spectrum control of plant parasitic nematodes and consistent yield protection performance in corn, soybeans, and cotton.
