Australia to OK Adama's fluensulfone

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has proposed the approval of Adama Agricultural Solutions' nematicide, fluensulfone, as a new active ingredient. It is for the control of root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp) in selected vegetable crops including cucumbers, melons, cantaloupes, tomatoes, capsicum, okra and eggplants (aubergines). Fluensulfone is subject to a joint review by the authorities in Australia, the US and Canada. The US EPA has recently proposed the registration of the nematicide, Nimitz (fluensulfone - see this issue). The APVMA's decision is subject to public comment until September 9th.
