Sivanto Prime insecticide label expanded

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of an URMULE registration for Sivanto Prime insecticidefor control of leafhoppers on hops in Canada. Sivanto Prime insecticide was already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control of several pests including aphids on hops. 


This minor use project was submitted by the Ontario Hop Growers’ Association as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel. 


The following is provided as an abbreviated, general outline only. Users should be making pest management decisions within a robust integrated pest management program and should consult the complete label before using Sivanto Prime insecticide.



Sivanto Prime insecticide is toxic to aquatic organisms, bees and certain beneficial insects and non-target terrestrial plants. DO NOT apply this product to blooming crops or weeds while bees are actively visiting the treatment area. Application during the crop blooming period, and when flowering weeds are present may only be made in the early morning and the evening when most bees are not foraging. Minimize spray drift to reduce harmful effects on bees in habitats close to the application site. Do not contaminate aquatic habitats when spraying or when cleaning and rinsing spray equipment or containers. 


Flupyradifurone is persistent and may carry over. It is recommended that any products containing flupyradifurone not be used in areas treated with this product during the previous season. 


Flupyradifurone and its transformation product difluoroacetic acid demonstrate the properties and characteristics associated with chemicals detected in ground water. The use of flupyradifurone in areas where soils are permeable, particularly where the water table is shallow, may result in ground water contamination. 


Follow all other precautions and directions for use on the Sivanto Prime insecticide label carefully.
