Vive gains Canadian government grant

The Canadian company, Vive Crop Protection (Toronto, Ontario) has received a Can$3.7 million (US$3.5 million) award from the Canadian government to develop an improved pesticide application distribution method, resulting in greater efficiency and reduced wastage. The company recently received its first approval for a pyrethroid insecticide, VCP-01 (bifenthrin 10%), based on its proprietary polymer-based Allosperse delivery system (Agrow No 670, p 34).  Further developments of the technology are aimed at reducing run-off and increasing penetration of leaves and seeds. Controlled movement through the soil is intended to target pests at the plant's roots, the company points out.
