California OKs Certis biofungicide

Mitsui & Co’s US subsidiary, Certis USA (Columbia, Maryland), has received approval for its biofungicide, Double Nickel 55 ( Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain D747), in the US state of California. That follows federal approval in December 2011. Double Nickel is for the control of powdery mildew, Botrytis spp and bacterial diseases of fruit, vegetables and grapevines. It is being introduced under a global licensing deal between Certis USA and Kumiai Chemical ( Agrow No 634, p 19). A second formulation, Double Nickel LC, is expected to be approved in California soon, Certis USA notes.
