Argentine grape growers must apply Lobesia insecticides

Argentine grape farmers are obliged to apply insecticides for the control of European grapevine moths ( Lobesia botrana) in quarantine areas. The national animal and plant health inspection service, the Senasa, has reiterated the order that all such growers apply products that were authorised last year under Resolution 504/2010 ( Agrow No 593, p 19). There are 29 products, including 19 ais from 13 registrants, including Syngenta, BASF, Dow, DuPont and national suppliers. Applications are to be made when the Senasa broadcasts alerts for each wave of pests throughout the grape growing season. The legislation sets penalty fines of up to 100,000 pesos ($20,000) for those growers who do not make the necessary applications. The Senasa delivered free products to grapevine producers in three localities in Mendoza province at the end of last year, who had vineyards of up to 25 ha ( Agrow No 606, p 20).
