US EPA to approve BASF acaricides
The US EPA proposes to register two BASF acaricides based on Japanese company Otsuka Chemical's cyflumetofen. Nealta is for use on pome and citrus fruit, tree nuts, grapevines, strawberries and tomatoes, and Sultan is for use on ornamentals. Both are 120 g/litre suspension concentrate formulations. The EPA has carried out a joint review of the application with the authorities in Canada and Mexico.
