Gowan debuts pyridaben in North America
The US specialty agrochemical company, Gowan (Yuma, Arizona), has begun selling Nissan Chemical's insecticide/acaricide, pyridaben, in the US and Canada. Gowan is marketing the active ingredient as NeXter in both countries. It gained North American rights to pyridaben from Nissan late last year. The ai was previously sold in North America by BASF, which used the Nexter and Pyramite brands in the US and Pyramite in Canada.
