Valent Professional Products announced that Overture Insecticide has been registered in California for use on greenhouse-grown ornamental crops. Overture will provide growers consistent, effective control of thrips and lepidopterous larvae.

Overture has a novel mode of action that will help growers in the fight against tough-to-control Western flower thrips, the single most damaging pest in California greenhouse ornamentals. Overture is a great resistance management tool and rotation partner for Conserve. Also, Overture is soft on most beneficial insects.

With its registration in California, Overture is now available for use in all 50 states.

“Western flower thrips are a bigger issue in California that anywhere else in the country,” said Dr. Joe Chamberlin, regional field development manager for Valent Professional Products. “Growers in California have been anxiously awaiting the registration of Overture because they need new chemistry, and we’re excited that we can now offer them a new tool for control of this destructive pest.”
