DVA debuts Azamax in Brazil

German crop protection company DVA (Hamburg)’s Brazilian business DVA Brasil has launched the botanical insecticide/nematicide, Azamax (azadirachtin). The product was initially approved for use on citrus fruit, and subsequently on another 11 crops in Brazil, including coffee, peppers, tomatoes and chrysanthemums, DVA says. Azamax works as an insect growth regulator, anti-feedant and repellent. It is for the control of whiteflies, mites, leaf miners, caterpillars, aphids, thrips and other “difficult to control” insects, the company says. DVA recommends it for use in IPM systems. Azadirachtin was among new pesticide active ingredients in the approval process considered by the authorities as priority for registration two years ago ( Agrow No 541, p 17).
