Syngenta launches Minecto Pro insecticide

Syngenta has launched Minecto Pro, a foliar-applied insecticide for broad-spectrum control of key pests in potatoes, apples, pears and a variety of vegetable crops, according to a November 13 company news release.

 

Minecto Pro delivers two active ingredients – abamectin (Group 6) and cyantraniliprole (Group 28). Both make use of translaminar movement within the plant to achieve coverage and provide a reservoir of activity for extended control of targeted organisms.

 

In apples and pears, Minecto Pro provides effective control of a number of key pests, including labelled species of mites, aphids, and leafminers, plus economically important Lepidopteran species, including codling moth and Oriental fruit moth.
 

“The formulation of Minecto Pro gives apple and pear growers a simple solution for protection from a number of sucking and chewing pests, without the requirement of mixing products to target multiple pests,” says Sam Livesey, commercial projects lead with Syngenta Canada.

An adjuvant must be used with Minecto Pro. The liquid formulation can also be easily tank-mixed with several fungicides, including Aprovia Top and Orondis Ultra.
 

Minecto Pro will be available for the 2019 season and will be sold in 4 x 3.78 L jugs.
