Bayer CropScience has received the first regulatory approval for its new insecticidal active ingredient spirotetramat from the authorities in Tunisia. “Spirotetramat is a promising active ingredient in the ketoenoles substance class. The decisive advantages of this new systemic leaf insecticide are its efficacy against a broad spectrum of sucking insects and its suitability for use on all types of crops," commented Dr. Roiger Scheitza, Member of the Board of Management of Bayer CropScience and Head of Global Portfolio Management. “We hope to expand our global leadership position in the insecticides market segment with spirotetramat," he emphasized.

The intention is to market spirotetramat worldwide under the brand name Movento. Further approvals for Movento in the United States and further markets worldwide are expected next year. Launch of the new insecticide is planned for 2008.
