US EPA OKs Anatis bioinsecticide

The US EPA has approved Canadian company Anatis Bioprotection's (St-Jacques-le-Mineur, Quebec) bioinsecticide, Bioceres (Beauveria bassiana strain ANT-03 20%), for use on a range of fruit, vegetables, field crops, turf and ornamentals. It is for the control of pests such as aphids, whiteflies, thrips and plant bugs. The Agency notified receipt of an application to register the bioinsecticide in late 2013 and granted a tolerance exemption for use on all agricultural commodities in December 2014. B bassiana strain ANT-03 is a new active ingredient, but the EPA has approved several other strains of the fungus with similar use patterns, the Agency notes.
