New Acelepryn® Xtra insecticide from Syngenta packs an “Xtra” punch for even more insect control

Two modes of action offer broader-spectrum control and a wider application window

GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, August 17, 2023 ― Syngenta announced today that its latest insect control innovation, Acelepryn® Xtra insecticide, is now available for use on lawns, athletic fields and golf courses. Acelepryn Xtra has been engineered with two modes of action and the active ingredients chlorantraniliprole and thiamethoxam to provide broader-spectrum, season-long control of grubs, billbugs and caterpillars, as well as enhanced control of chinch bugs and added control of ants.

“We’re excited about the enhanced, broader-spectrum insect control turf managers will get from Acelepryn Xtra,” said Carson Cashwell, market manager for lawn care at Syngenta. “It’s an incredible value, especially when purchased as part of the Double Up Bonus during the GreenTrust® 365 Early Order Period, as well as with its 10% volume discount.”

With its two active ingredients, Acelepryn Xtra offers turf managers more control and a wider application window than the original Acelepryn. In addition to season-long control of grubs, billbugs and turf caterpillars, Acelepryn Xtra offers early curative grub control through the second instar. It is also labelled for ant control and provides enhanced chinch bug control, with at least three months of southern chinch bug control. Acelepryn Xtra powers the GreenTrust 365 Grub, Billbug and Caterpillar Prevention Guarantee and the GreenTrust 365 St. Augustinegrass Guarantee programs for lawn care, which provide additional value to help reduce callbacks.

“Turf managers historically have had to make multiple insecticide applications throughout the year to get the length and spectrum of control they need,” explained Matt Giese, M.S., technical services manager for turf at Syngenta. “Acelepryn Xtra has an even wider application window and controls more pests than Acelepryn, reducing the number of applications needed. This makes Acelepryn Xtra a convenient, smart choice for effective agronomic programs.”
