Certis launches cyflumetofen in Netherlands
Mitsui & Co's agrochemical distribution company, Certis Europe, has launched Japanese company Otsuka's acaricide, Scelta (cyflumetofen), in the Dutch ornamentals market. Scelta provides mite control for all outdoor and protected ornamental crops and controls all stages of the mite life-cycle. It is a highly selective, contact acylacetonitrile acaricide, compatible with biological controls and safe to the crop. It comes from a chemical group that has not been used on ornamentals before and is seen as an important tool for resistance management.
