Brazil and Japan OK DuPont’s chlorantraniliprole

DuPont has received regulatory approval in Brazil and Japan to sell its insecticide, Rynaxypyr (chlorantraniliprole). The Brazilian registration is the first for the active ingredient in South America. The insecticide is to be marketed in the country as Premio and Altacor. It is registered for use on 13 crops including cotton, coffee, rice, sugar cane and several vegetables. The Brazilian toxicology authorities recommended its approval earlier this year ( Agrow No 575, p 31). It is registered in Japan for use on 18 crops, including rice, soybeans, tea, cabbages, broccoli and aubergines, DuPont says. Chlorantraniliprole was granted its first approval in the Philippines in 2007 ( Agrow No 534, p 5), and has since been registered in the US and Canada ( Agrow No 543, p 22), and seven EU countries. Sales are expected to reach nearly $200 million this year (see this issue).
