Spain grants Movento exceptional use OKs

Spain has granted exceptional use authorisations for Bayer CropScience’s insecticides, Movento O-Tec and Movento Gold (both spirotetramat). The former is a 15% aqueous solution formulation for use on table grapes and covered peppers for the control of citrus mealybugs ( Planococcus citri). The authorisation follows requests from the regional authorities in Murcia and Valencia, and runs from May 1st to August 31st this year. Movento Gold is a 100 g/litre suspension concentrate authorised for use against pear psyllids ( Psyllapyricola) on pear trees, and green peach aphids ( Myzus persicae) on melons. The approval follows requests from Catalonian and Riojan authorities and runs until August 24th. Spirotetramat has provisional, three-year approvals in several EU member states, the first of which came in Austria in 2008 ( Agrow No 576, p 23).
