FMC Corporation (NYSE: FMC), a leading global agricultural sciences company, has received registration in Brazil for Azugro® and Ezanya® herbicides for use in cotton, tobacco and wheat crops. Azugro® and Ezanya® herbicides are powered by Isoflex® active, FMC's brand name for bixlozone. Isoflex® active is a novel herbicide when used in cereals and is classified by the Herbicide Resistance Action Committee (HRAC) as a Group 13 herbicide. The two new formulations will provide growers with new tools to effectively manage herbicide resistance across a wide range of agronomic practices.

"FMC is committed to providing growers with innovative solutions that enhance the productivity and resilience of their land," said Sinara Ferreira, FMC Brazil business director. "We are confident that Azugro® and Ezanya® herbicides will contribute to a healthy crop by providing growers with new and important tools to control weeds that are resistant to other herbicides."

Azugro® and Ezanya® herbicides offer effective control of key annual grass weeds, including goosegrass (Eleusine indica), Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) and some key broadleaf weeds. Azugro® herbicide will be available for use in cotton during the 2024 crop season and wheat in 2025, while Ezanya® herbicide will be available for use in tobacco during the 2024 crop season. Research on the use of Isoflex® active products in additional crops and segments in Brazil is ongoing.

The registrations in Brazil mark another significant regulatory approval for FMC and Isoflex® active, which is currently registered in Argentina, Australia and China. Products containing Isoflex® active have exhibited pre-plant, pre-emergence and early post-emergence selectivity in major crops across the globe, including canola, cereals, oilseed rape and pulses.
