Bayer debuts Belt in Argentina

Bayer CropScience has launched its insecticide, Belt (Nihon Nohyaku’s flubendiamide 480 g/litre), in Argentina. The company debuted the product for use on various crops last month. It is for use on soybeans, beans, tomatoes, cotton and tobacco for the control of: sunflower loopers ( Rachiplusia nu), velvetbean caterpillars ( Anticarsia gemmatalis), soybean loopers ( Pseudoplusia includens), bollworms ( Helicoverpa spp), cotton leafworms ( Alabama argillacea), and tomato leafminers ( Tuta absoluta). The company notes that the product is compatible within IPM systems, safe to non-target organisms including pollinators, and has US tolerances and global residue limits. The product is already marketed in other Latin American countries, including Brazil and Chile ( Agrow No 569, p 28). Bayer considers the southern region of the continent key for Belt, and it was one of the company’s star performers there last year ( Agrow No 611, pp 4-5).
