Bayer launches Infinito in Brazil
Bayer CropScience launched the fungicide, Infinito (fluopicolide 62.5 g/litre + propamocarb hydrochloride 625 g/litre), in Brazil last month. It is a suspension concentrate formulation recommended as a foliar application on tomatoes and potatoes against late blight ( Phytophthora infestans). The Brazilian authorities approved fluopicolide’s dossier as complete last year ( Agrow No 550, p 19). The active ingredient gained its first approvals in the UK and China in 2005 ( Agrow No 485, p 21), and was granted its first South American registration in 2007 in Colombia ( Agrow No 522, p 18).
