Minecto® Pro insecticide has received federal registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for use in specialty and vegetable crops. The new Syngenta insecticide helps control lepidopteran pests, as well as sucking, rasping and chewing pests, including mites, whiteflies, psyllids, thrips and Colorado potato beetles.
Minecto Pro combines cyantraniliprole—a second-generation diamide that provides a broader spectrum of control—and abamectin—the global standard for mite control—into one convenient premix formulation. Its complementary modes of action broaden the activity spectrum compared to standalone products.
Upon receipt of individual state registrations, Minecto Pro will be commercially available for the 2017 growing season.
The Syngenta program provides growers and retailers with education and local recommendations to help them manage resistant weeds in their areas.
