Italy OKs Dow’s Karamat M
Dow AgroSciences has been granted authorisation for marketing in Italy of its fungicide Karamat M (meptyldinocap). The emulsfiable concentrate formulation is for use on strawberries, melons and cucurbits against powdery mildews. It is the second approval for a product based on the active ingredient in Italy. The country was among the first to register meptyldinocap in 2007 ( Agrow No 520, p 18). That approval was for use on grapevines against powdery mildew and marketed as Karathane Star. Italian agrochemical company Scam (Milan) is to distribute the new product as Gunner SC.
