BASF Gets PMRA Registration for Broflanilide


Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has granted registration approval for BASF’s products Teraxxa F4 and Cimegra, which contain Broflanilide, BASF says in a news release on Oct. 19.

Broflanilide, is the first IRAC Group 30 available in Canada, the release notes. It is a powerful insecticide used in two new products — Teraxxa® F4 insecticide and fungicide for cereals and Cimegra® for potatoes and corn.

Both products will be available to Canadian growers for the 2021 season.

Cimegra insecticide provides control of prevalent and difficult to control chewing insects in potatoes and corn, including wireworm, for in-season management and reduction of resident populations, the release says.
