AzaGuard label updated; new formulation released

BioSafe Systems has released a new formulation of AzaGuard Insecticide/Nematicide.

A common inert used in emulsified concentrates was recently put on the EPA watch list, BioSafe noted in a press release. BioSafe Systems underwent the process of reformulating AzaGuard and updating the label through the EPA to produce a more sustainable botanical insecticide, according to the company. Additionally, over 30 new crops were added to the label including arugula, globe artichokes, pomegranates and cranberries.

AzaGuard is a 3 percent Azadirachtin Botanical Insecticide utilizing the technical material that remains below 20 percent by weight to maintain high levels of other important limonoids. The inclusion of these important limonoids in AzaGuard enhances the efficacy of the active ingredient as an insect growth regulator, insect repellant and anti-feedant, according to BioSafe.

In addition, AzaGuard is formulated in the U.S. under strict quality control conditions from technical material extracted from newly harvested neem seeds. These manufacturing efforts ensure that AzaGuard maintains the maximum potency until used by our customers, according to the company.
