Bayer expands Aliette and Movento uses

by Press release | Jul 2013
Jul. 12, 2013, Guelph, ON - Canadian fruit and vegetable growers can have access to more diversified crop protection options thanks to the recent label expansion for Aliette fungicide and Movento insecticide, two products from Bayer CropScience that can help protect against diseases and insects.

Aliette is a fully systemic fungicide that allows the plant to build its own defense against disease. A Group 33 fungicide, Aliette is now registered for grapes (wine and table) to control downy mildew, spinach to suppress downy mildew and white rust, and cranberries to control phytophthora root rot. The new label expansion also means Aliette can be used on the whole brassica leafy vegetables crop group, instead of only broccoli and bok choy.

The label expansion of Aliette is a direct result of advancements in the Canadian regulatory environment, which now allows U.S. data to be submitted in a Canadian registration.

“Bayer CropScience is committed in closing the technology gap between the U.S. and Canada to ensure Canadian growers can participate in a strong and competitive fruit and vegetable market.” said David Kikkert, Portfolio Manager, Horticulture, Bayer CropScience. “Aliette is another example of how Bayer CropScience continues to offer better protection to Canadian growers.”

Movento, a Group 23 insecticide, offers a unique two-way systemic control against sucking insect pests. As a Lipid Biosynthesis Inhibitor (LBI), Movento provides extremely effective activity on hard-to-control sucking pests like aphids, psyllids and thrips. Through the minor use registration process the Movento label has now been expanded to include:
  • Crop Group 3-bulb vegetables against onion thrip larvae
  • Crop Group 13B-bushberries and Crop Group 13H-low growing berries against aphids, blueberry maggot, blueberry gall midge, cranberry tipworm and for lecanium scale suppression
  • Globe artichoke against aphids
  • Sweet corn against aphids
