Bayer debuts fluopyram nematicide in Honduras

Bayer CropScience has launched the benzamide fungicide, fluopyram, as a nematicide, Verango (fluopyram 500 g/litre), in Honduras for use on bananas. Verango is a suspension concentrate formulation. The company says it is the first "green band" – lowest toxicological classification chemical - in its class for the protection of banana and plantain roots. Bayer head of marketing in Central America Holger Berg believes that the company is "leading the transformation of the concept of banana and plantain root health". The company has chosen Honduras for the first launch of Verango nematicide as it rates the country as the "crop’s regional leader".  Fluopyram was first registered in the UK and Turkey two years ago (Agrow No 633, p 21). It was developed for use on a range of crops including maize, soybeans and other field crops, stone and pome fruit, grapevines, vegetables and nuts.
