Australia to OK Adama's Nimitz

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has proposed the approval of Adama Agricultural Solutions' nematicide, Nimitz 480 EC (fluensulfone 480 g/litre), for the control of root knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp). It is for pre-plant use on cucurbits, tomatoes, capsicums (peppers), chillies, eggplants (aubergines) and okra. The APVMA proposed the approval of fluensulfone as a new active ingredient in 2014. The formulated product would be applied at 4-8 litres/ha, with a maximum single application of 3.8 kg ai/ha.  Adama received US approval for Nimitz last year. The company submitted an OECD dossier for global joint review by the authorities in the US, Canada and Australia. The APVMA's decision is open to public comment until July 28th.
