New Arysta LifeScience Plant Oil-Based Insecticide Registered In The UK

Arysta LifeScience Corporation has signed a 20-year licensing agreement with Plan Impact for the exclusive rights to manufacture, market and sell BugOil insecticide.


BugOil is a new technology derived from essential plant oils. Developed by Plant Impact, it controls mites and whiteflies using a natural-based formulation.

“BugOil is an innovative product that will benefit many of our customers, particularly in fruit and vegetable crops,” says Chris Richards, president and CEO of Arysta LifeScience.

Plant Impact expects to receive first regulatory approval for BugOil in the UK in early 2010. Registrations in other European Union countries will follow. Arysta LifeScience and Plant Impact are working together to achieve registration in the US, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle and Far East, where BugOil has the potential to provide fruit and vegetable crops free from chemical residues.
