Chile approves BASF’s Initium

Chile has approved BASF’s fungicide, Zampro (ametoctradin 300 g/litre + dimethomorph 225 g/litre). It is the first registration for a product based on the active ingredient, ametoctradin (trade-marked as Initium) in South America. A second approval came soon afterwards in Ecuador for use on ornamentals, the company told Agrow. Zampro is a suspension concentrate formulation for use on potatoes at an application rate of 0.8-1 litre/ha for the control of late blight ( Phytophthora infestans). It is recommended for a maximum of four applications per season at 7-14 day intervals. BASF is seeking an extension to the product’s use in Chile on tomatoes and onions, which it expects in 2011.
