Q & A

How does Bayer market its products in Saudi Arabia?

We have four National distributors in Saudi Arabia (Al-Emar International for chemicals and veterinary, SAUDI UNITED FERTILIZER CO. (AL-ASMIDA), AL JAMMAZ EST., Agricultural Machinery & Materials Co.Ltd.) each of which sell a part of the total portfolio.

How do I ensure that the MRL (Maximum residue Limit) in a harvested crop is not exceeded after I apply a crop protection product?

Principally, the way to avoid any such problems is to closely follow the label. Especially you must not exceed the maximum registered dose and you must not harvest the produce until the minimum pre-harvest interval has been exceeded.

How do I find out what protective clothing is required for me to spray safely?

Read the label carefully; all the safety information is printed on it.

I have relatives in Europe and they tell me that in Europe there is a product called MOVENTO that is really good for controlling scales and mealybugs in citrus and grapes. Why can’t I buy it in Saudi Arabia?

Movento is Registered in Saudi Arabia and this excellent product is already available in the Saudi market.

In my local retail shop there are two different looking bottles of FOLICUR. One must be a fake?

Although we are aware that fake product is a problem sometimes in Middle East, in this case it is probably not a problem. Recently Bayer launched a distinctive new bottle type in the Middle East markets, for liquid crop protection products, called “Smartline ®” It may be that your retailer still has some remaining stocks of the old bottle design. Take a very careful look at the bottles, usually counterfeiters get things wrong.
