The State of California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR) announced the proposed decision to register Midas, a broad spectrum soil fumigant from Arysta LifeScience that controls a broad range of soil-borne diseases, nematodes, weed seeds and insects that threaten high-value crops. California will now move into a risk mitigation phase to determine the final label for the sale and use of Midas.


"This announcement is a step in the right direction for California," said Bill Lewis, president and CEO of Arysta LifeScience North America. "The strong efforts made by CDPR in conducting a separate and thorough review of the weight of scientific evidence supporting their conclusions has delivered a decision that is in keeping with career EPA scientists, 47 other U.S. states and other countries. Arysta LifeScience remains committed to bringing Midas to market in California."
