US approval for Devgen's nematicide

The Belgian biotechnology company, Devgen (Ghent), has received US approval for the established fungicide, iprodione, as a nematicide. It plans to introduce the product, as Enclosure, for use on peanuts in 2010. Large-scale demonstration trials will be carried out this year. Devgen identified iprodione as a nematicide through its proprietary genomic-based crop protection technology, the company says. It has been under development in several countries for the past five years. Iprodione was introduced as a fungicide some 30 years ago by the Bayer CropScience legacy company, Rhone-Poulenc.
