Australia to approve DuPont's Cyazypyr

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has proposed the approval of DuPont's insecticide, Exirel (cyantraniliprole - trade-marked as Cyazypyr - 100 g/litre), for use on cotton. The suspo-emulsion formulation is intended for the control of sucking and chewing insects such as silverleaf whiteflies (Bemisia tabaci), cotton aphids (Aphis gossypii), cotton bollworms (Helicoverpa armigera) and native budworms (H punctigera). The APVMA has also proposed the registration of cyantraniliprole as a new active ingredient for use on cotton, canola, certain vegetables and turf.  DuPont received its first approval for cyantraniliprole in Argentina, as Benevia, for use on tomatoes in 2012 (Agrow No 651, p 25). It expected to gain approvals in 20 countries by the end of this year (Agrow No 659, p 3). The APVMA decisions are open to public comment until November 5th.
