- WISCONSIN: "Pesticides containing the active ingredient
isoxaflutole will not be sold in Wisconsin in 2003.
The need to protect Wisconsin’s water resources led the
Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection to
require special restrictions and conditions if the corn herbicide,
Balance Pro, was to be used in
Wisconsin. Because of the added environmental requirements,
Bayer CropScience, the pesticide
manufacturer, has decided not to distribute the product in Wisconsin
in 2003" ... Wisconsin,
