Certis Europe to distribute tebufenozide

Nippon Soda has appointed Mitsui & Co's agrochemical distribution company, Certis Europe, as distributor for products containing the insect growth regulator, tebufenozide. Certis will sell one or both products, Mimic and Confirm, in Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and the UK. The move comes after Nippon Soda’s acquisition of the active ingredient from Dow AgroSciences at the end of March ( Agrow No 589, p 3). Key plant markets for the products include fruit, vegetables, grapevines, rice and forestry, in which they control a range of lepidopteran pests, Certis says. Nippon Soda holds a 15% stake in Certis Europe ( Agrow No 413, p 4). The two companies are working together to effect the immediate transfer of the business from Dow.
