Greece OKs BASF's Alverde

Greece has approved BASF’s semicarbazone insecticide, Alverde (Nihon Nohyaku’s metaflumizone). It is the first registration of the active ingredient in the country. Alverde is a 240 g/litre suspension concentrate formulation for use on potatoes against Colorado potato beetles ( Leptinotarsa decemlineata), on greenhouse tomatoes against tomato fruit worms ( Heliothis armigera) and Spodoptera spp, and on greenhouse peppers against European corn borers ( Ostrinia nubilialis) and other lepidopteran pests. Colombia granted the first registration for metaflumizone in late 2006, where it is marketed as Verismo SC ( Agrow No 518, p 22). It has also been approved in Austria and other EU countries as Alverde ( Agrow No 560, p 22). Metaflumizone was discovered by Nihon Nohyaku and is being co-developed globally with BASF.
