BASF’s acaricide Nealta (cyflumetofen) obtained approval from the Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Authority (PMRA), to control European red mite and twospotted spider mite and McDaniel spider mite on pome fruits, grape, strawberry, and tomato. Cyflumetofen is a new active ingredient which is concurrently being registered in Canada and the United States. The MRLs proposed for cyflumetofen in Canada are the same as promulgated in the United States, except for berries and livestock commodities.
Cyflumetofen is a compound in the benzoylacetonitrile class of chemistry. It interferes with energy production within cells when in contact with spider mites.
