The glufosinate market is anticipated to foster consumer demands with natural herbicides and rise in concerns for a wide range of agrochemicals.
Glufosinate market encompasses a wide range of applications for agricultural and non-agricultural sectors. Factors such as high efficacy and rise in use of agrochemicals are the major forces for the market developments. With cereals & grains scoring more on market growth due to high consumption, the glufosinate market sustains enlarged demands from consumers. Glufosinate-ammonium is an ISO approved name for ammonium-DL-homoalanin. Glufosinate-ammonium is used as a selective herbicide for vegetation control and as a desiccant to boost the crop harvesting.
Much recently, Fargro declared no supply of products involving glufosinate ammonium after 31st January 2019 due to change in policies. Finale 150 is a fargro product that is a foliar contract herbicide used as a band or spot application for control of grass & broad-leaved weeds. It also seeks approval for use on hard and rough surfaces, natural surfaces and permeable surfaces that overlays the soil contents.
Apart, FDA has cleared the use for pesticide/herbicide use for most foods in the USA. Back in 2016, FDA released herbicide data that revealed evaluation for glyphosphate, acid herbicides and glufosinates. The laboratory tests confirmed that the tests found herbicide’s residue in the corn and soybean samples. Further, the tests also confirmed no toxicity due to glyphosphate and glufosinate residues.
The FDA report tells that the analysis for glyphosphate and glufosinate residue levels in grain corn, soybean and egg samples were pretty clear and contained no substance with potential hazards. The human foods were also pesticide free and compliant with the food quality standards that allowed for several levels of residues respective of specific pesticide ingredients.
Scott Gottlieb, FDA Commissioner shared that this would be a great news for public since the herbicides/pesticides have a lot of potential to offer in terms of agricultural yield.
