EPA has renewed the registration without time limitations for Arysta LifeScience’s Midas products.
Midas is a broad-spectrum soil fumigant that effectively controls a broad range of soil-borne diseases, nematodes, weed seeds, and insects that threaten high-value crops. It received a time limited commercial registration for one year from the EPA in October 2007. Since that time, the product has been registered for use in 47 states.
The fumigant is a complement to the company’s existing crop protection products that are used on crops ranging from corn and soybeans to fruits, nut trees and nursery crops.
It was developed to provide growers with an efficacious fumigant replacement methyl bromide under the Montreal Protocol. Growers around the world have long relied on methyl bromide as their choice fumigant and the phase out has left growers with few effective broad-spectrum choices.
