Rotam and AMVAC partner to distribute Rotam’s new ReTurn™XL.

 

Rotam and AMVAC announced today that AMVAC will be an exclusive distribution partner for Rotam’s new Return® XL, an oxamyl based product for use on potato, cotton, tobacco and peanuts that is currently pending EPA registration.  ReTurn XL is a new broad-spectrum oxamyl-based crop protection product formulated to control nematodes and various sucking and chewing insects.

Greg Warren, marketing manager of AMVAC said, “This product is a welcome addition to our existing portfolio in these core markets.  We will offer pricing, programs and supply information to our customers as soon as the product receives EPA registration. (PRIA date October 13)
