MARKET

 

Cedroz first gained EU product authorisation from the Regulatory Affairs Directorate in Malta in 2019 and was granted "emergency use authorisation" in Italy in the same year.

Emergency use approvals signify the demand for products of this type and Cedroz has now received full approval in seven countries.

 

Eastman Chemical Company currently has exclusive rights to develop the market for the Cedroz nematicide formulation across 29 countries.
