SHUTTLE™ Miticide Approved for Use in Canada

Registration for use on greenhouse ornamentals.

CARY, N.C. (December 19, 2007) – Arysta LifeScience North America today announced the registration of Shuttle™ 15 SC Miticide in Canada. The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) approved the product for use on greenhouse ornamentals for control of two-spotted spider and spruce spider mites.

 “With its rapid knockdown and long-lasting residual activity on two-spotted spider mite, Shuttle offers excellent control of one of the most troublesome mites,” says Mark McLear, Business Manager, Horticulture for Arysta LifeScience in Canada. “In addition, Shuttle has little or no impact on predacious mites and other beneficial species.”  Shuttle delivers contact activity for quick control of two-spotted and spruce spider mites at all life stages. In addition, Shuttle features the active ingredient – acequinocyl – with a unique mode of action and no known cross-resistance, making it an ideal choice to help manage mite resistance.  Shuttle also offers greenhouse ornamental growers additional value-added benefits including a Reduced Risk EPA classification and a Restricted Entry Interval of only 12 hours.  “Shuttle is an exceptional value for greenhouse ornamental growers because it provides fast control, a unique mode of action, and an excellent fit in Integrated Pest Management programs,” McLear says.  Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, Arysta LifeScience is the world’s largest privately held crop protection and life science company with 2006 revenues of JPY124.1 billion (US$1 billion).
