The article reports on the banning of isoproturon (IPU) and trifluralin. According to the author, after the announcement that the actives will be banned, costs of weed control and challenges for managing herbicide resistance may rise. Clare Bend of Masstock said that IPU has been an inexpensive and effective weed solution. James Knight of Dow AgroScience stated that losing IPU and trifluralin brings a major challenge for effective grassweed control.
