US/Canadian approvals for Dow's sulfoxaflor
Dow AgroSciences has received US and Canadian approvals for its new insecticide, sulfoxaflor. The US EPA proposed the registration of a 50% water-dispersible granule formulation, Transform, and a 240 g/litre suspension concentrate formulation, Closer, with an identical range of uses in January ( Agrow No 656, p 18). The US and Canadian approvals resulted from a global joint review process, which also included Australia. Approval in Australia is expected by the third quarter of this year.
