DuPont confirms US Approach approval
DuPont has confirmed the recent US approval of its fungicide, Approach (picoxystrobin 252 g/litre), for maize, soybeans, small-grain cereals, beans and canola. The company highlights the use of the product for broad-spectrum foliar and soil-borne disease control on maize, soybeans and wheat. The fungicide’s “unique” combination of preventive and curative properties provides rapid foliar uptake and systemic redistribution throughout the crop canopy, DuPont notes. The registration application was submitted to the US and Canadian authorities under the NAFTA joint review process. The US EPA proposed the approval in October ( Agrow No 651, p 23).
