Gowan debuts fenazaquin in US

The US agrochemical company, Gowan (Yuma, Arizona), has introduced the insecticide/acaricide, Magus (fenazaquin 192 g/litre), for use on ornamentals in the US. The launch follows the first US use approval for fenazaquin, which has import approvals for apples, pears and citrus fruit. The EPA proposed the registration in February ( Agrow No 587, p 28). Magus is a suspension concentrate with contact and residual activity against most mites found on ornamentals, Gowan points out. It also controls whiteflies. Magus is recommended for use at 12-24 fl oz/acre (0.9-1.8 litres/ha). While new to the US, fenazaquin is used on agricultural and horticultural crops in more than 50 countries, the company adds. Gowan acquired fenazaquin from Dow AgroSciences in 2002 ( Agrow No 393, p 3).
