The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has proposed to approve BASF’s Danisaraba Miticide containing 200 g/L of the approved active constituent cyflumetofen, as a suspension concentrate (SC) formulation.
Danisaraba Miticide is a miticide intended for the control of various mite species in pome fruit, almonds, citrus, grapes, fruiting vegetables, strawberries, and ornamentals. This includes protected use in the case of strawberries, tomatoes, and ornamentals.
According to the company, Danisaraba introduces a highly effective new mode of action for the control of two-spotted spider mites and other damaging, web-spinning species. Unlike other miticides, Danisaraba has activity on harmful mites at every life stage and will increase the flexibility and sustainability of IPM programs across a wide range of crops.
The APVMA has evaluated the chemistry of the active constituent cyflumetofen and associated product Danisaraba Miticide including the physicochemical properties, manufacturing process, quality control procedures, identification, stability, batch analysis results, and analytical methods, and found them to be acceptable. Based on a review of the chemistry and manufacturing details, the registration of Danisaraba Miticide, and approval of the active constituent cyflumetofen, are supported from a chemistry perspective.
The APVMA invites comment from 14 December 2021 to 11 January 2022 on whether approval of the active constituent and registration of the product should be granted.
