New insecticide provides application timing flexibilityEnvironmental Science, a business unit of the Crop Science division of Bayer, announced that Altus insecticide will be available for purchase through authorized agents beginning May 1, 2017. Altus introduces a new insect management solution to greenhouse growers that controls major sucking pests while offering flexibility of applications before, during and after bloom.
Altus insecticide, a novel chemistry for use in production ornamentals, offers the following key benefits to growers:
- No application timing restrictions means growers can apply Altus before, during and after bloom
- New active ingredient in the ornamentals market offers control of major sucking pests, such as aphids, whiteflies, psyllids and other key insect pests
- Compatibility with honey bees, bumble bees and many beneficial arthropods offers application flexibility
- Classified as a Reduced Risk product by the EPA
- Short, four-hour re-entry interval in most states simplifies operations
- Foliar or drench options offer flexibility to match the best control method with the target pest and crop
- Crop flexibility allows for use in greenhouses and nurseries on ornamental plants, vegetable transplants and indoor vegetable production
- Rotational chemistry reduces risk of resistance and works well as part of an integrated pest management program
Flupyradifurone, a new active ingredient in the butenolide class of chemistry, is a systemic and translaminar insecticide for controlling major sucking pests, such as aphids, whiteflies, psyllids and other key insect pests. It was inspired by a molecule derived from nature – the plant Stemona japonica. Altus is classified as a reduced risk product by the EPA, offering flexible application before, during and after bloom and is compatible with honey bees, bumble bees and many beneficial arthropods.
