Makhteshim Agan of North America, Inc., (MANA) and Chemtura Corp. have announced an agreement for MANA to acquire the rights to Diamond (novaluron), a broad-spectrum cotton and sugarcane insecticide with a unique mode of action, according to a MANA release.

MANA has been the technical registrant of novaluron and will continue to manufacture all Diamond technical material. As part of the distribution agreement, MANA receives all registrations, regulatory data, trademark rights, and existing inventories of Diamond from Chemtura.

Diamond provides long-lasting control of a wide range of insect larvae and nymphs that damage cotton yields, and becomes the newest crop protection product added to MANAs portfolio of more than 50 branded insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, plant growth regulators and harvest aids.Diamond can be applied alone, in a tank mix, or in rotation with conventional pyrethroid, organophosphate, or neonicotinoid insecticides for control of plant bugs, stink bugs, budworms, bollworms, foliage feeders, and more. The insecticide also is proven as an effective integrated pest management tool, the release states.

John Rabby, MANA president and chief executive officer, says Diamond has a natural fit into the company抯 growing product portfolio. 揑t works well within most insecticide and resistance management programs used by cotton growers with its proven, broad-spectrum control,?he said.

Specific terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
