US to approve Dow's sulfoxaflor
The US EPA has proposed the approval of Dow AgroSciences’ new insecticide, sulfoxaflor. It plans to approve a 50% water-dispersible granule formulation, Transform, and a 240 g/litre emulsifiable concentrate formulation, Closer, with an identical range of uses. The registrations would cover a total of 39 crops or crop groups, including cotton, canola, soybeans, small-grain cereals, fruit, vegetables, turf and ornamentals. There would be no residential uses.
