I will be rich, Rich, RICH, when my lawyers and political consultants
finish bribing, er, negotiating the special laws through Congre$$ needed
for these patents. (Claritin, anyone?)

>> I had a look at Novartis patent wo9935913 which can be accessed at
>> It states:
>> "Present invention relates to a method of controlling pests with a
>> nitroimino or nitroguanidino compound, especially thiamethoxam,
>> imidacioprid, Ti-435, thiacloprid, and at least one auxiliary to the
>> transgenic crop plant."
>> Preferred are imidacloprid and thiamethoxan.
>> Targets are especially insects of the order Acarina.
>> Advantageous properties: extension of the pesticidal spectrum of action
>> to other pests, for example to resistant strains , sufficient control of
>> the pests with the aid of the composition where nitroimino or transgenic
>> plants alone are entirely ineffective".
>> First, it seems this is more a discovery than an invention. The
>> application states that "surprisingly, it has been found that
>> nitroimino- and nitroguanidino compounds exceed the Bt working of
>> transgenic plants" .
>> However, more important, it seems to be a cover up to hide the
>> inefficiency of Bt plants and the fact that resistant strains have
>> The application refers to the possible components of the compositions.
>> "the action of nitroimino and nitroguanidino can be extended
>> substantially by adding other insecticidally, acaricidally and/or
>> fungicidally active ingredients such as:
>> organophosphorus compounds, nitrophenols and derivatives, fornamidines,
>> ureas, carbamates, pyrethroids, chlorinated hydrocarbons. Especially
>> preferred components in mixtures are for example abamectin, emamectin,
>> spinosad, pyrnetrozine, fenoxycarb, Ti-435, fipronil, pyriproxyfen,
>> diazonin or diafenthyrion.
>> Also other auxiliaries can be used in the composition such as ,
>> stabilizers, antifoams, preservatives, bactericides, fungicides,
>> nematicides, molluscicides or herbicides."
>> The compositions are pretty flexible given the following statement in
>> the application:
>> "As a rule, the compositions within the scope of invention comprise
>> 0,1-99%, in particular 0,1-95% of a nitroimino or nitroguanidino
>> compound and 1-99%, in particular 5-99% of -at least- one solid or
>> liquid auxiliary."
>> The composition can be sprayed, preferrably foliar spraying but can also
>> be added to the soil in granular form or can be added as coating to the
>> The "invention" apllies for Bt plants and for GE lectinplants!
>> But also gives a whole list of other substances, which I will give in a
>> next message.
