Australia to OK Bayer's fluopyram

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has proposed the approval of Bayer CropScience's fungicide, fluopyram, as a new active ingredient and the product, Luna Privilege (fluopyram 500 g/litre), for the control of Botrytis spp and powdery mildew (Uncinula necator) on grapevines. The submission has been assessed under a joint review arrangement where registrations for the same formulation and similar uses were submitted concurrently in Australia, Canada, the US and Germany. Fluopyram-based products have been approved in the EU, the US, Canada and New Zealand.  Bayer introduced its Luna family of fungicides in the US in 2012.  The Australian approval decision is open to public comment until May 5th.
