The US EPA has proposed the registration of nematicide Nimitz (fluensulfone 480 EC) from ADAMA (Formerly Makhteshim-Agan) to control root-knot (Meloidogyne spp), sting (Belonolaimus spp) and lesion (Pratylenchus spp) nematodes on cucubits and fruiting vegetables. 
With very favorable toxicological and eco-toxicological profiles, Fluensulfone belongs to a unique new chemical class with a new mode of action. Being a true nematicide, fluensulfone kills the target by contact, rather than temporary nematostatic (paralysis) activity as seen with current organophosphate and carbamate chemistry. 
NIMITZ® has rapid activity on nematodes. Within 1 hour of contact nematodes cease feeding and become paralysed within 24 - 72 hours. Any eggs laid after exposure to NIMITZ® are likely to be unviable, or if juveniles do hatch, they do not survive.
The public comment for fluensulfone is open until August 25th.
