Turkey OKs Devgen’s Devgard

The Belgian biotechnology company, Devgen (Ghent), and Turkish agrochemical company Dogal (Istanbul) have been granted approval in Turkey to market the nematicide, Devgard (ipriodine). The Ministry of Agriculture has approved the product for use on tomatoes and cucumbers under protective cover. The product is aimed at the EU export market as “the residue nightmare will be solved”, Dogal chief executive officer Ferhan Tezcan says. Devgen CEO Thierry Bogaert says that the company seeks to market the product across the Mediterranean. Devgen gained US approval for the established fungicide as a nematicide earlier this year ( Agrow No 568, p 23), and has others pending in Europe, it told Agrow. The companies are launching the product in Turkey this month.
