Brazil grants DuPont's Premio emergency use

Brazil has granted an emergency use extension to DuPont’s insecticide, Premio (chlorantraniliprole - trade-marked as Rynaxypyr), for the control of Helicoverpa spp and southern armyworms (Spodoptera eridania) on soybeans and cotton, national media report.  Corn earworms (H armigera) have become a critical pest issue in Brazil cotton and soybeans (Agrow passim). It is reportedly costing farmers some R$2,000 million ($829 million) in losses, with the worst affected state, Bahia, losing over a third of its crop to the pest, according to soybean grower association, the Aprosoja. State authorities put losses to the pest at over four times that amount including control costs (Agrow No 669, p 19). Premio debuted three years ago for use on soybeans among other crops for the control of several pests (Agrow No 588, p 25).
