10, 2003 - A dossier for the active substance benthiavalicarb
was submitted by Kumiai Chemicals Industry Co Ltd to the authorities
of Belgium on 19 April 2002.
Official Journal of
the European Communities.
Kumiai Chemical Industry has signed a license
option agreement with Bayer for its novel fungicide KIF-230
(proposed ISO name: benthiavalicarb). Kumiai is targeting an
international launch of a range of proprietary benthiavalicarb
mixtures in 2003 with substantial sales projected. Bayer will
examine the commercialisation of its own specific benthiavalicarb
formulations. Benthiavalicarb is an amino acid amide carbonate
that was discovered at K-I Laboratories,
a joint venture between Kumiai Chemical and Ihara Chemical Industry.
The fungicide displays very good efficacy against downy mildew
and other diseases in grapes, potatoes and vegetables at doses
of less than 100g ai per hectare. Kumiai Chemical plans to make
registration submissions over the coming year in Japan, Europe,
Latin America and elsewhere. Ihara Chemical
will produce the fungicide.
