Arysta launches Pallid-X in India
Arysta LifeScience's Indian subsidiary has launched the acaricide, Pallid-X (propargite). It offers effective control of various species of mites, including red spider mites and two-spotted mites (both Tetranychus spp), the company says. Over the last decade, India has seen an upsurge in mite attacks, it adds. Arysta says that its acquisition of Indian company Devidayal provided it with strong market access and a portfolio of generic crop protection and nutrition products. Arysta bought a majority stake in the company in 2011 and fully acquired it last year (Agrow No 634, p 2).
