The Chinese Institute for the Control of Agrochemicals, Ministry of Agriculture (ICAMA) has recently granted the temporary registration for the active ingredient of DuPont’s fungicide picoxystrobin, which will expire for 1 year.

Picoxystrobin is a strobilurin fungicide, inhibiting fungal respiration and has both preventative and curative properties, with improved curative properties compared to azoxystrobin in certain crops.

Picoxystrobin was initially introduced by Syngenta for control of yellow, brown and crown rusts, powdery mildew, sooty mold, net and leaf blotch and tan spot on cereal crops, including: wheat, barley and oats in Europe in 2001. In 2006, this product was sold to DuPont in return for access to the insecticide chlorantraniliprole for use in mixtures.

Picoxystrobin is currently registered in some 28 countries, including: Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Kenya, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, South Africa, Sweden and the UK. Registration is ongoing in the US, Italy and Portugal. DuPont has estimated its peak year sales potential for picoxystrobin to be $150 million.
