US residential approval for novaluron
The US EPA proposes granting the first residential use approval for Makhteshim-Agan Industries’ (MAI) insecticide, novaluron. It aims to register Rimon Supra 10EC as a spot or crack and crevice treatment against crickets. MAI received its first US approval for novaluron on greenhouse ornamentals in 2001 ( Agrow No 387, p 26), with food-use approvals following in 2004 ( Agrow No 449, p 22). The latest decision is open to public comment until January 27th.
