Bayer Environmental Science received an Agrow Award in the Best New Crop Protection Product category for Indaziflam, the herbicidal active ingredient in Specticle herbicide.

“We are incredibly honored to receive this prestigious award,” said Hermann Stübler, Ph.D., head of weed control research at Bayer, attending the award ceremony in Amsterdam on Oct. 28. “The need for new herbicides with alternative modes of action and resistance-breaking capabilities is more urgent than ever. In a team effort we created and developed indaziflam, employing our leading expertise in herbicide research and our deep knowledge of weed control.”

Presented by Agrow, the Agrow Awards allow the industry to showcase innovations in 15 categories, including research and development, formulation technology, stewardship and corporate responsibility. The Best New Crop Protection Product category recognizes the most important new crop protection product or trait launched between Jan. 1, 2012 and April 30, 2013, including agrochemical, agbiotech and biopesticide products. Entries were judged by an independent panel of industry experts seeking a product that has demonstrated immediate commercial success, has long-term potential, stands ahead of its competitors in terms of efficacy, environmental or user safety and has a demonstrable effect on the ability of farmers and growers to protect their crops.
