Certis gets JetFive OK in Italy
Mitsui & Co’s agrochemical distribution company, Certis Europe, has been granted registration in Italy for its biocide/disinfectant, JetFive (peroxyacetic acid 5%), for agricultural and non-crop preventive treatments. It can be used in horticulture, in greenhouses, storage buildings, irrigation systems, as well as on benches, tools, pots and paths against a wide spectrum of diseases, Certis says. The product can be applied as a spray, a fog, or as a dipping solution. It has been marketed for several years as a disinfectant, and gained UK approval in 2003 for pre-planting use on seed potatoes to protect against bacterial diseases ( Agrow No 419, p 22).
