Delegate insecticide label expanded on grapes, fruiting vegetables

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) recently announced the approval of a minor use label expansion registration for Delegate insecticide for control of spotted wing drosophila (SWD) on grapes and control of corn borer, potato beetle and SWD on fruiting vegetables, crop group 8-09* in Canada. Delegate insecticide was already labeled for use on a wide variety of crops in Canada for control of several insects.

 

The grape minor use project was submitted by Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada, Pest Management Centre (AAFC-PMC) and the fruiting vegetable minor use project was submitted by Ontario as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel.

CPB: 160 – 240 

ECB: 160 

SWD: 280 

CPB: Time the application for egg hatch or small larvae. Use the higher rate for higher pest pressure or for larger larvae. A repeat application in 7 to 14 days may be necessary depending on the pest pressure. 

ECB: Monitor egg laying and egg hatch to determine application timing. Time the application to coincide with peak egg hatch. A repeat application in 7 to 14 days may be necessary depending on the pest pressure. 

SWD: Timing of applications should be based on the presence of adult flies as determined by local monitoring. A repeat application in 7 to 14 days may be necessary depending on the pest pressure. 

Apply a maximum of three applications per year.
