Australia to OK Mitsui's dinotefuran

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) proposes to approve a registration application from Australian agrochemical company AgNova Technologies (Box Hill North, Victoria) for the insecticide, Starkle 200 SG (Mitsui Chemicals Agro's dinotefuran 20%), for use on cotton. It is for the control of silverleaf whiteflies (Bemisia tabaci Biotype B) and green mirids (Creontiades dilutus). The water-soluble granule would be applied by ground or air once or twice per season. Dinotefuran would be a new active ingredient in Australia. It would be manufactured and Starkle 200 SG formulated overseas. Dinotefuran has been approved for use on various crops, including cotton, in several countries. It has been registered in Japan, the US, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. The APVMA decision is open to public comment until September 22nd.
