Vive gains first US OK for novel bifenthrin formulation
The Canadian company, Vive Crop Protection (Toronto, Ontario), has received US approval for its pyrethroid insecticide, VCP-01 (bifenthrin 10%), for use on a range of crops, turf and ornamentals. The dry flowable formulation is the first product based on Vive's proprietary Allosperse polymer-based delivery system. It allows "maximum initial knockdown" and "the longest retreatment intervals", Vive points out. The formulation is solvent-free and resistant to ultra-violet light degradation. VCP-01 is Vive's first US product approval.
