Arysta launches Kasai-S 92SC in Vietnam
Arysta LifeScience has launched the fungicide, Kasai-S 92SC (kasugamycin 12 g/litre + tricyclazole 80 g/litre) in Vietnam. It is for the control of rice blast ( Pyricularia grisea) and leaf diseases. It is the first “blasticide” in SC formulation in Vietnam, the company says. It is being manufactured at the company’s new SC formulation plant in Binh Duong province, which was opened in May ( Agrow No 641, p 8). Arysta began developing the product in collaboration with Hokko Chemical and Dow AgroSciences in 2008. The company expects Kasai-S to become an important disease management tool for rice growers in Vietnam, which is the second largest rice exporting country in the world.
