US approval for Bayer's Belt
Bayer CropScience has received US approval for a new insecticide, Belt SC ( Nihon Nohyaku’s flubendiamide 480 g/litre), for use on fruit and arable crops for the control of lepidopteran pests. The product has been registered for use on pome and stone fruit, tree nuts, grapevines, maize, cotton and tobacco. Belt has been approved for use in California, but some state registrations are still pending. They are expected to be granted within the next month.
