Isoclast™ active launched at the Fruit Logistica Fair

Fruit Logistica is one of the key produce trade fairs in Europe, bringing together over 2,500 companies and 65,000 visitors to explore the latest innovations in the global supply chain. With a track record of delivering breakthrough solutions, Dow AgroSciences selected the event to unveil Isoclast™ active, a revolutionary new insecticide developed to support farmers and growers across the EU region.

“Years of significant investment in R&D, enables us (Dow AgroSciences) to research and develop innovative solutions for growers to address the challenging pest problems in key fruit and vegetable crops,” commented Pierre Flye Sainte-Marie, Vice President, EMEA and Pacific, Dow AgroSciences.

As the first member of a new class of insecticides, Isoclast™ active will be a key asset in tackling the challenge of the ongoing loss of critical crop protection tools. With a unique mode of action and excellent knockdown and residual control, Isoclast controls critical sap-feeding insect pests in key crops and is fully compatible with IPM (Integrated Pest Management) schemes.

“We welcome new innovations such as this to add to an ever-scarcer toolbox and to support a sustainable and competitive sector,” observed Daniel Sauvaitre, President of the French Association of Apples and Pears Growers (ANPP).

Registered at EU level, Isoclast is now undergoing the process to receive national registrations.
