Dow presents spinetoram insecticides in Brazil

Dow AgroSciences has presented two spinetoram-based insecticides at a pre-launch gathering in Brazil. They include Exalt and Delegate. The former is a suspension concentrate formulation for use on soybeans against various lepidopteran pests. The latter is a water-dispersible granule formulation for use on tomatoes and another eight horticultural crops. The Ministry of Agriculture approved the active ingredient last month. It was granted approval by the toxicology authorities in 2012 with a "moderately toxic" evaluation, level III, followed by a higher "very dangerous" classification II on environmental effects. Spinetoram gained its first approval in New Zealand in 2007.
