Bayer debuts Altacor in Portugal

Bayer CropScience has launched the insecticide, Altacor (DuPont’s chlorantraniliprole) in Portugal. Altacor is a water-dispersible granule formulation for use on covered and uncovered horticultural crops, including tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, cucumbers, courgettes and lettuces, against lepidoptera, particularly tomato leaf miners ( Tuta absoluta). The company launched a version of chlorantraniliprole in Portugal last year for use on grapevines, potatoes and tomatoes ( Agrow No 595, p 22). DuPont gained registration of the ai earlier in 2010. Bayer’s Portuguese operation has a distribution agreement with DuPont for chlorantraniliprole.
