US EPA is seeking public comment on natamycin for post-harvest and indoors use on pineapples as a fungistat. In January 2014, DSM submitted to register natamycin (tradenamed as Zivion P) for this use. 
Natamycin is a naturally-occurring antimycotic compound derived from the common soil microorganisms Streptomyces natalensis, Streptomyces lydicus and Streptomyces chattanoogensis. This ais has a non-toxic mode of action, preventing the germination of fungal spores. Natamycin is currently registered by the Agency as a microbial pesticide for greenhouse, nursery, turfgrass, agricultural, enclosed mushroom production facilities, and seed treatment uses.
The public comment is open until November 29th.
