New Zealand OKs ISK's flonicamid

The New Zealand Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) has approved an application from Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha to import or manufacture the insecticide, Mainman (flonicamid 50%). The water-dispersible granule formulation is for the control of sucking pests such as psyllids and aphids on potatoes and horticultural crops. The EPA held a hearing on the application in February. It was the first application to register a product containing flonicamid in New Zealand. The Australian authorities proposed approval of the insecticide last year. Flonicamid has been registered since 2005 in Asia, the Americas and Europe under several trade names, including Teppeki, Turbine and Beleaf for use on fruit, vegetable and arable crops.
