Certis to sell Kaken fungicide in US residential sector
Mitsui & Co's US subsidiary, Certis USA (Columbia, Maryland), is to introduce a 0.5% suspension concentrate (SC) version of Japanese firm Kaken Pharmaceutical's established fungicide, Polyoxin D zinc salt (polyoxorim), for the US residential sector by the end of 2014. It will be marketed as Novel for use on turf, fruit trees and vegetables. Certis will sell a concentrate for dilution in water or fertiliser solutions and a ready-to-use formulation. Last year, Certis and Kaken agreed to introduce two 5% SC formulations of the fungicide under the Tavano and OSO brands for use on various fruit and vegetable crops (Agrow No 654, p 3).
