Mar 24, 2009EPA Approves Syngenta Insecticide
The first seed-treatment insecticide for small-seeded vegetables has been approved by EPA for use on cucurbits, according to Syngenta Seed Care. This new tool delivers targeted protection against early-season sucking and chewing insects and will be available as a component of the FarMore Technology platform.
The insecticide component of FarMore Technology protects against early season insects including aphids, cucumber beetles, flea beetles, leafminers, whiteflies, wireworms and seedcorn maggots. In addition, the FarMore Technology platform offers broad-spectrum, systemic and post-emergence disease protection against fusarium, pythium and rhizoctonia. This combined insect and disease protection gets crops off to a healthy start and improves plant vigor, which leads to more advanced crop development and superior performance – helping maximize yield and quality potential.
