Nichino's tolfenpyrad heads for US
Nihon Nohyaku’s US subsidiary, Nichino America, has applied for US approval of its insecticide, tolfenpyrad, for the control of thrips, aphids and scales on greenhouse ornamentals. The end-use product, code-named 71711-GR, is described by the EPA as a 15% emulsifiable concentrate. It will be applied by back-pack sprayer or by similar low-volume equipment. The Agency has scheduled a registration decision for the third quarter of 2009 ( Agrow No 550, p 15). The insecticide is well established in other markets.
