US OK for BASF's Zampro
BASF has confirmed the US approval of its new fungicide, ametoctradin (trade-marked as Initium), in the combination product, Zampro (ametoctradin 300 g/litre + dimethomorph 226 g/litre). It is for use on cucurbits, vegetables, potatoes, grapevines and hops. The same combination of active ingredients had already been approved as Orvego for use on ornamentals. The EPA proposed the approvals in March ( Agrow No 637, p 20).
