BASF introduces new Versys insecticide

There’s a new tool for aphid and whitefly control in fruits and vegetables, and it’s ready for 2019. BASF introduces Versys, powered by a new active ingredient called Inscalis.

 

The company says that extensive research and commercial trials across Canada and the U.S. have confirmed that Versys acts quickly and provides extended duration of control in many fruit and vegetable crops.

 

Versys provides a new mode of action from a new group of insecticides (IRAC Group 9D) which allows it to control aphids and whiteflies that may have developed tolerance to other chemistries.

 

It does not impact beneficial predatory insects, allowing it to be incorporated into an integrated pest management strategy.

 

Versys’ active ingredient Inscalis was discovered by a team that included 2015 Nobel Prize recipient, Dr. Satoshi Omura.

 

Customers can learn more about Versys insecticide at AgSolutions.ca/Horticulture.
