Bayer expands CropStar sales in Brazil

Bayer CropScience has expanded the marketing of its insecticidal/nematicidal seed treatment, CropStar (imidacloprid 150 g/litre + thiodicarb 450 g/litre), in Brazil to ten more crops including several of the country’s key ones. They are soybeans, cotton, wheat, sorghum, rice, winter cereals, sunflowers, beans, peanuts and castor beans. Bayer has just been granted the use extension, the company says. It previously only had a registration for use on maize. Bayer debuted CropStar in Brazil for use on maize against fall armyworms ( Spodoptera frugiperda) two years ago ( Agrow No 552, p 22). CropStar mainly controls lepidopteran pests, sucking pests and nematodes. It is the only product that protects these crops against those pests, seed treatment portfolio chief at Bayer, Luis Henrique, says.
