US OK for Syngenta's Avicta on maize

Syngenta has received US approval for its nematicidal seed treatment, Avicta (abamectin), for use on maize. The company plans to conduct large-scale demonstrations with the product this year ahead of a commercial launch in 2010. It will combine Avicta with the insecticide, Cruiser (thiamethoxam), and the fungicides, Apron XL (metalaxyl-M), Maxim XL (fludioxonil) and Dynasty (azoxystrobin). This will be the only maize seed treatment to provide triple protection against nematodes, insects and diseases, the company says. Syngenta launched a similar combination for use on cotton in 2006 ( Agrow No 482, p 22).
