Australian approval for DuPont's Fontelis
DuPont has received Australian approval for its fungicide, Fontelis (Mitsui Chemicals’ penthiopyrad 200 g/litre), for use on certain fruit, nut and vegetable crops. The Australian Pest Management Regulatory Authority proposed the registration in August ( Agrow No 647, p 19). The fungicide underwent a joint review in Australia, the US, Canada and the UK. It was approved in Canada in late 2011 and in the US earlier this year ( Agrow No 636, p 21).
