Arysta debuts Kasumin 2L in Canada
Arysta LifeScience is introducing its bactericide, Kasumin 2L (kasugamycin), in Canada for use on fruit and vegetables. The product has been registered for the control of fireblight ( Erwinia carotovora) on apples and pears and the suppression of bacterial spot ( Xanthomonas campestris) and stem canker ( Clavibacter michiganensis) on tomatoes and peppers. The product’s unique mode of action makes it an effective resistance management tool, Arysta points out. The Canadian authorities proposed the approval of Kasumin 2L for use on greenhouse and field-grown fruiting vegetables last year ( Agrow No 654, p 19).
