The US EPA has proposed to approve Dow AgroSciences’ new insecticide, sulfoxaflor for used on various crops and vegetables. The EPA opens the public comment until Feb 12, 2013.
Sulfoxaflor is the first molecule to be commercialized from the new sulfoximine class of insecticides developed by Dow AgroSciences. The effects of sulfoxaflor on the exposed aphid nervous system in situ are analogous to those of imidacloprid and nitenpyram, and finally the high-affinity sulfoxaflor binding site is absent in a Myzus persicae strain (clone FRC) possessing a single amino acid point mutation (R81T) in the β-nAChR, a region critical for neonicotinoid interaction.
Dow AgroSciences got its first country registration for sulfoxaflor in Korea in 2011.
