  • Patent number: 10876130
    Abstract: In the present invention, HPPD enzymes and plants containing them showing a full tolerance against several classes of HPPD-inhibitors are described. A set of HPPD enzymes have been designed which have either no or only a significantly reduced affinity to HPPD inhibitors and, at the same time, the rate of dissociation of the HPPD inhibitors of the enzyme is increased to such an extent that the HPPD inhibitors no longer act as slow-binding or slow, tight-binding inhibitors but, instead of this, have become fully reversible inhibitors. In particular, isolated polynucleotides encoding HPPD inhibitor tolerance polypeptides are provided. Additionally, amino acid sequences corresponding to the polynucleotides are encompassed.

  • Publication number: 20130225406
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the use of compositions that, when applied to citrus, are capable of controlling the psyllids Trioza erytreae and Diaphorina citri, vectors of bacteria of the genus Candidatus liberibacter, which cause the disease known as Huanglongbing (HLB), deemed to be the most destructive disease currently to affect citrus crops worldwide. These compositions may contain, without distinction, or jointly, as active components, vitamin K3, soluble derivatives thereof (preferably menadione sodium bisulphite [MSB]) or sparingly soluble derivatives thereof (preferably menadione nicotinamide bisulphite [MNB]), with respective concentrations of between 0.0001 and 200 ppm, 0.001 and 10 000 ppm, preferably vitamin K3 between 0.001 and 100 ppm, MSB between 0.01 and 5000 ppm, and MNB between 0.01 and 5000 ppm.

  • Publication number: 20130203601
    Abstract: Stabilized liquid agrochemical compositions are provided that comprise flowable, aqueous dispersion concentrates comprising a) a continuous aqueous liquid phase; b) at least one dispersed, solid phase comprising a dispersion of polymer particles having a mean particle size of at least one micron, wherein the outside surfaces of the particles comprise a colloidal solid material and wherein the particles have at least one agrochemically active ingredient distributed therein, optionally a non-porous particulate mineral that acts as a diffusion barrier to slow the release of the active ingredient, and optionally at least one non-cross-linkable mobile chemical such that the extraction of this chemical from the disperse phase renders it porous in a manner that allows the active ingredient to diffuse out. The colloidal solid is used to stabilize the polymenzable resin in an emulsion state during preparation.

  • Publication number: 20130137572
    Abstract: Stabilized liquid agrochemical compositions are provided that comprise flowable, nonaqueous dispersion concentrates comprising a) a continuous non-aqueous liquid phase; b) at least one dispersed, solid phase comprising a dispersion of polymer particles wherein the outside surfaces of the particles comprise a colloidal solid material and wherein the particles have at least one chemical agent distributed therein. The colloidal solid is present in an amount effective to stabilize the polymer particles in an emulsion state during the process which is used to prepare the dispersed phase. When the chemical agents are agriculturally active ingredients, the compositions of the invention can be used directly or with dilution to combat pests or as plant growth regulators.
