A new fungicide to protect cereal crops
Decision Date: 27 August 2019
The application for Vimoy Iblon has been approved and the decision is published.
Bayer New Zealand Limited applied to us to import for release a new fungicide, Vimoy Iblon, to New Zealand.
The active ingredient in Vimoy Iblon, isoflucypram, had not been approved in any country prior to this decision. This active ingredient is a Succinate DeHydrogenase Inhibitor (SDHI) fungicide. Bayer intends to market its use to control scald, net blotch, Ramularia leaf spot in barley, leaf rust in barley and wheat, stripe rust in wheat and triticale, speckled leaf blotch in wheat and stem rust in ryegrass crops.
It is also said to be able to treat four arable diseases in New Zealand: Septoria tritici and leaf rust which infect wheat; Ramularia leaf spot that infects barley, and stem rust which infects ryegrass seed crops.
