US EPA posts Dow sulfoxaflor submission
The US EPA has confirmed the receipt of an application from Dow AgroSciences to register two sulfoxaflor-based insecticides. Transform WG is a 50% water-dispersible granule and GF-2032 SC is a 21.8% suspension concentrate. They are intended for use on a range of crops including cotton, soybeans, small-grain cereals, fruit, vegetables, nuts and turf. The EPA has scheduled an approval decision for sulfoxaflor on small-grain cereals, cotton and soybeans for July-September 2012 ( Agrow No 604, p 15). Dow has submitted a global joint review dossier to the authorities in Australia, the US and Canada. It plans to market the insecticide as Transform and Closer ( Agrow No 604, p 21).
