Bayer debuts Infinito on Colombian palms

Bayer CropScience has launched its fungicide, Infinito (fluopicolide + propamocarb hydrochloride), in Colombia for the control of bud rot ( Phytophthora palmivora) on palms. The Ministry of Agriculture issued a state of emergency over the disease last year. Infinito is a suspension concentrate formulation and has been approved in several markets for use on potatoes. Its first South American authorisation came in 2007 in Colombia, where it is also registered for use on melons, potatoes and roses ( Agrow No 613, p 20). The emergency eradication rules such as uprooting and re-planting cover several regions. Bayer says Infinito can be employed as part of IPM control systems against bud rot. Colombia is the principal grower of palm trees in South America, and over 16,000 ha have been at risk from the disease, the Ministry has said.
