FMC Corporation 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. 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.
