Rotam CropSciences Ltd. has received the new registration of its product Abacus® V (abamectin) in California which recently mandated a reduction in volatile organic compound (VOC) emission for all crop protection products with over 30% of volatility.
Rotam has successfully conserved the same concentration of active ingredient (1.8%) into the same EC formulation and maintained the best efficacy for the molecule as well as the accustomed protective characteristics that farmers were familiar with.
Rotam researchers explored a variety of approaches to meet the new guidelines and, in the end, decided to formulate a new abamectin product that not only exceeded the regulation requirements but also alleviated grower concerns. With lower VOC, Abacus® V has the same effectiveness as the original abamectin products along with the same rate of application.
Growers can rest assured that the improved Abacus® V product will meet their crop protection needs.
