CAN: New insecticide to manage aphids and whiteflies granted registration

Rycar™ has been granted registration for control of aphids and whiteflies in greenhouse cucumbers, eggplant, lettuce, peppers, tomatoes, and ornamental plants.

Rycar is a new product for Canadian greenhouse growers that will help them continue to manage aphids and whiteflies in greenhouse vegetable and ornamental crops.

"Rycar is an exciting new tool for Canadian greenhouse growers that will bring a lot of utility to their pest management programs," noted Kelly Devaere, Plant Products' Crop Protection Market Manager. "At the same time, we are pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with Nichino America to introduce Rycar to Canadian growers."

The only Group 9B insecticide registered for use in greenhouse crops, Rycar is a rotation option that will control pests that may have developed tolerances to other chemistries. Rycar acts via contact and ingestion and stops target insects from feeding within two hours with control during the next 48 hours. At the same time, Rycar is an excellent fit in an IPM program with little impact on beneficial insects and bees.
