LIMBURGERHOF, GERMANY: BASF SE said that it has submitted a regulatory dossier for a new insecticide active ingredient, Inscalis. Inscalis is the pioneer solution from a novel chemical class, the pyropenes, offering an alternative mode of action for the control of key insect pests and providing an essential tool to farmers for use in resistance and integrated pest management programs.

The first market introductions of Inscalis-based products are expected in 2019.

“Insect species causing crop damage are extremely diverse and adaptable. That is why developing new insecticides are critically important for the sustainable management of devastating pests, especially those that have developed resistance to other insecticides,” said Livio Tedeschi, VP global strategic marketing, insecticides, BASF’s crop protection division.

Inscalis controls critical piercing and sucking insect pests such as aphids, whiteflies, psyllids, scales, and leafhoppers. It has a favourable environmental profile and low acute toxicity to important beneficial arthropods, including pollinators. Extensive research has demonstrated its excellent selective performance against a range of damaging insect pests. The new insecticide will provide farmers optimal new solutions for insect control, BASF said.

Inscalis, co-developed with the Japanese company Meiji Seika Pharma Co Ltd, will play an integral role in BASF's insecticide portfolio both as a solo product and as a mixing partner, and will be marketed in a large number of countries worldwide, it said.
