Argentina sets new season grape moth controls

The Argentine authorities are extending the control area for the use of pheromones to control and eradicate European grapevine moths ( Lobesia botrana) in the coming 2012/13 crop season. The national animal and plant health inspection service, the Senasa, has agreed measures with the Mendosa region’s plant health institute, the Iscamen, including supplying pesticides to smallholder farmers to control “first-generation” pests. The parties, along with other official staff, reviewed last year’s treatments and decided to continue with the use of pesticides as part of the control measures. That included 29 products, including 19 active ingredients from 13 registrants, including Syngenta, BASF, Dow AgroSciences, DuPont and national suppliers ( Agrow No 625, p 37). Applications would follow Senasa broadcast alerts for each wave of pests.
