Canadian approval for Arysta's Evito
The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency has approved Arysta LifeScience’s fungicide, Evito 480 SC (Bayer CropScience’s fluoxastrobin 480 g/litre), for use on maize, wheat, barley, soybeans, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, strawberries and turf. It controls a range of diseases such as rusts and powdery mildew on cereals and late blight ( Phytophthora infestans) on potatoes. Evito was approved in the US in 2006 ( Agrow No 489, p 19). Bayer recently granted Arysta a global licence to fluoxastrobin ( Agrow No 642, p 2). Arysta has held rights in the US, Canada and Japan since 2005.
