DuPont Receives Experimental Use Permits for New Insecticides
DuPont announced last week that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved experimental use permits (EUP) for both DuPont™ Altacor™ and DuPont™ Coragen™ insecticides for use on 10 fruit and vegetable crops in 16 states, including California, Florida and Texas.
Both products are based on Rynaxypyr™, a new crop protection chemistry from DuPont with high efficacy in controlling target pests at low use rates.
“This is a significant step for DuPont and our customers because the Experimental Use Permit gives us the opportunity to generate use and performance data in commercial agricultural programs and takes us a step closer to launching these products next year,” said Jim Collins, vice president and general manager, DuPont Crop Protection. “We look forward to providing customers new technology that offers reliable and consistent pest control combined with a very favorable environmental profile, consistent with our objective of delivering innovations that advance sustainable agricultural production.”
The trials will provide DuPont the opportunity to evaluate these products in large scale tests and will permit cooperators an opportunity to experience the benefits of these products. Under the EUP, growers will be able to harvest their crops treated with these products.
