Dow licenses meptyldinocap to Gowan
Dow AgroSciences has granted a licence to US agrochemical company Gowan (Yuma, Arizona) to develop and market Dow’s fungicide, meptyldinocap, for use on fruit and vines in the US and Canada. Meptyldinocap represents a new mode of action for the control of grape powdery mildew ( Uncinula necator), the companies point out. It is derived from the established acaricide/fungicide, dinocap. Dow received its first approvals for meptyldinocap in several European markets in 2007 ( Agrow No 520, p 18). The US EPA granted an import tolerance for meptyldinocap in grapes in 2009 ( Agrow No 582, p 17).
