Syngenta announced that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has registered and approved its new foliar insecticide Minecto Pro for use in potatoes and other specialty vegetable crops. This crop protectant targets lepidopteran pests as well as sucking, rasping, chewing pests like mites, whiteflies, psyllids, thrips and Colorado potato beetles. It will be commercially available for the 2017 growing season upon receipt of individual state registrations.
Minecto Pro combines cyantraniliprole, a second generation diamide that provides broad spectrum of control, and abamectin for mite control, into one convenient premix formulation.
