Exosect submits EU dossier for kaolin

UK-based enabling technology provider Exosect (Winchester, Hampshire) has submitted an EU dossier for the use of aluminium silicate (kaolin) as an additional active ingredient in support of its biopesticide formulation (Bb38) for the protection of stored commodities. In November, the company submitted a dossier to the Dutch authorities for an isolate of the entomopathogenic fungus, Beauveria bassiana, for the listing of the ai in Annex I of EU agrochemical Regulation 1107/2009 for use in insect pest control in stored commodities. “Kaolin provides synergistic properties when used in combination with other co-formulants for the control of insect pests found in grain stores,” says Exosect business development director Rob Cannings. He says that while kaolin is already registered as a repellent for use in plant protection products, this “recent discovery” demonstrates that kaolin has a control effect when used in this formulation.
