BASF debuts Fastac Fly in Spain
BASF has launched its insecticide, Fastac Fly (alpha-cypermethrin), in Spain. The suspension concentrate formulation is for the control of olive fruit flies (Bactrocea oleae). A microcrystal formulation guarantees the “existing maximum persistence” on the market and its application is well suited to IPM practices, the company says. It is rainfast, offering application safety and flexibility, a short safety interval and requires low water rates, thereby saving energy, BASF adds. The product was granted sale and use authorisation earlier this year.
