Fortenza Receives EPA Approval in Corn and Cotton
“We designed Fortenza to complement our brands containing Cruiser® insecticide,” says Dale Ireland, Ph.D., Seedcare technical product lead at Syngenta. “Data shows combining these products enhances the spectrum of insect control activity, raising the bar of protection for U.S. growers.”
The active ingredient in Fortenza, cyantraniliprole, protects against above- and below-ground insects, including black cutworm, fall armyworm, white grub, seedcorn maggot and wireworm. This is especially important to growers who are located in areas with a history of high cutworm activity. Fortenza may also help manage insect resistance, when used in combination with other insecticide chemistries or traits, by providing an additional mode of action against targeted insects.
