Sumitomo's pyridalyl targets EU

Sumitomo Chemical plans to seek approvals for its insecticide, pyridalyl, in several European countries for use on tomatoes, peppers, melons, lettuces, aubergines and cotton. The company has submitted an application for EU approval to the Netherlands, as rapporteur member state, and also intends to apply for registration in Spain, Italy, Greece and France. Pyridalyl controls lepidopteran pests. It was first launched in Japan in 2004, as Pleo, and received Indian approval last year, as SumiPleo (Agrow No 510, p 19). The ai is awaiting a registration decision in the US for use on brassicas and other crops (Agrow No 503, p 12).
