Canada to OK BASF acaricide

The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has proposed the approval of BASF's acaricide, Nealta (Otsuka Chemical's cyflumetofen), for use on pome fruit, grapevines, strawberries and tomatoes. It is recommended for the control of European red mites (Panonychus ulmi), two-spotted spider mites (Tetranychus urticae) and McDaniel spider mites (T mcdanieli). Cyflumetofen would be the only member of the beta-ketonitrile class of chemistry approved in Canada, making it of particular value in resistance management, the PMRA notes. The Agency carried out a joint review with the authorities in the US and Mexico. The US EPA proposed the approval of two cyflumetofen-based insecticides last month (Agrow No 684, p 24). The Canadian decision is open to public comment until April 15th.
