Argentina in pheromone auction

Argentine authorities have opened a public auction for the dispensing of pheromones for the control of codling moths ( Cydia pomonella) in the 2008/09 season. Representatives from BASF, Cheminova, and Argentine biopesticide companies, Agricheck (General Roca) and Agro Roca (Buenos Aires), were among bidders. Bidding took place for ten plots across the country where the pheromones are to be released. The use of pheromones is part of a five-year programme, the PNSC. It aims to cut long-term damage to below 0.1% of harvests. The Argentine national animal and plant health service, the Senasa, opened the auction in late July and a commission is assessing the bid documents. Codling moths cost Argentine exporters $30 million a year due to quarantine regulations in some foreign markets.
