Turkey and Lebanon approve Arkema fumigant

French chemical company Arkema (Colombes) has received approval for its soil fumigant, dimethyl disulfide, in Turkey and Lebanon. It will be sold as Paladin in Lebanon and as Accolade in Turkey. It is for use against soil-borne nematodes, diseases and weeds on aubergines, cucumbers and tomatoes. The product will be marketed through United Phosphorus in the two countries. It has been developed as an alternative to the ozone-depleting fumigant, methyl bromide. Further registrations are expected in the Middle East and Africa “in the coming months”. Paladin received US approval in 2010 for pre-plant use ( Agrow No 597, p 25). It has since been registered in Israel and Morocco. The company agreed a deal with Mitsui & Co's agrochemical distribution company, Certis Europe, to register and sell the product in Europe, where it is to submit a regulatory application for dimethyl disulfide by the end of the year ( Agrow No 631, p 3).
