BASF debuts Alverde in Spain

BASF has begun selling its insecticide, Alverde (metaflumizone 24%), in Spain. It was granted an exceptional use authorisation last month for two applications on tomatoes to control tomato leaf miners ( Tuta absoluta). Alverde is a suspension concentrate formulation and has a three-day safety interval. Metaflumizone’s listing on Annex I of the EU registration Directive is pending, but the EU authorities granted provisional approval extensions last month ( Agrow No 579, p 11). Alverde is sold in other EU member states, such as Austria and Greece. Spain granted the approval alongside that for Bayer CropScience’s insecticide, Fenos (flubendiamide - see this issue). They are valid for 120 days. Metaflumizone was discovered by Nihon Nohyaku and is being co-developed globally with BASF ( Agrow No 566, p 23).
