Bayer launches Belt in Mexico

Bayer CropScience has launched its insecticide, Belt (Nihon Nohyaku’s flubendiamide 480 g/litre), in Mexico. The approval for the active ingredient came in April and is valid until 2014. Belt is a suspension concentrate formulation for use as a foliar application to control beet armyworms ( Spodoptera exigua) on tomatoes, aubergines, and chrysanthemums, and diamondback moths ( Plutella xylostella) on broccoli and cauliflowers. Flubendiamide comes from a new chemical class, the phthalic acid diamides, which target insect ryanodine receptors ( Agrow No 479, p 21). It can be used in IPM systems and has US EPA tolerances on several crops, Bayer says. Three other Latin American countries have approved the ai: Brazil and Colombia, also as Belt; and in Chile as Fenos ( Agrow No 569, p 28). Bayer also has Mexican approval to sell Fenos.
