US EPA OKs FMC's Capture 3rive 3D
FMC has received US EPA approval for its insecticide, Capture 3rive 3D (bifenthrin), for the control of corn rootworms (Diabrotica spp) and other seed and seedling pests on maize. It is the first product for use with FMC's 3rive 3D pesticide application system, which is being introduced on a limited basis this year in partnership with US equipment company Emerge Application Solutions. The system allows growers to treat up to 500 acres (200 ha) using less than 10% of the typical liquid carrier volume, FMC points out. Capture 3rive 3D will contribute to an integrated strategy for the management of Bt-resistant rootworms, the company adds.
