EU notes complete dossiers for Plant Impact’s insecticides
The European Commission has declared that Plant Impact’s application dossiers for tagetes oil and thyme oil for use as insecticides are complete. This is an early stage in the EU registration process. The UK is handling the detailed evaluation of the dossiers as rapporteur member state. Plant Impact is developing an essential oil-based insecticide as BugOil ( Agrow No 552, p 22). Last year, it granted Arysta LifeScience a worldwide licence to the product ( Agrow No 569, p 3). The German crop protection company, DVA Agro, also has an agreement to distribute the product, as Bionic, for use on ornamentals in Tanzania ( Agrow No 543, p 1).
