US OK for dry form of MBI's Grandevo
The US biopesticide company, Marrone Bio Innovations (Davis, California), has received EPA approval for a dry formulation of its bioinsecticide/acaricide, Grandevo ( Chromobacterium subtsugae strain PRAA4-1T). It is for use on a range of food crops and ornamentals for the control of sucking pests and mites. It can be applied by ground or air. MBI launched a flowable formulation of Grandevo in Florida last year for use on citrus ( Agrow No 626, p 25).
