Syngenta Insecticide Labeled for Use on Vegetables
To meet growers’ needs around vegetable products, Endeavor insecticide from Syngenta has been approved for use on vegetable plants grown for consumers. This includes cucurbits, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, brassica and leafy vegetables.
The expanded label also includes the addition of drench applications for ornamentals. Endeavor offers targeted control of whiteflies and aphids, two of the most common insects greenhouse and nursery growers face.
“The unique active ingredient and targeted protection offered by Endeavor make it a valuable tool for integrated pest management programs, especially those involving biological control agents,” said Laurie Riggs, insecticide brand manager at Syngenta. “With the addition of vegetables to the label, growers that have trusted Endeavor for many years to protect their ornamentals can now expand its use to their vegetable transplants, without disrupting existing programs.”
Endeavor features a novel mode of action in IRAC group 9B, which quickly stops aphids and whiteflies from feeding, reducing the threat of virus transmission and eliminating populations. It is highly compatible with predators, parasites, and other beneficial mites and insects. It is a proven solution to incorporate with beneficial insects to help control two problematic pests in production.
“With both translaminar and systemic movement, Endeavor has proven to offer long residual activity,” said Nancy Rechcigl, technical services manager for ornamentals at Syngenta. “Spray applications generally provide 14-21 days of control, and now with drench applications added to the label, protection can be extended 6-7 weeks.”
Endeavor is also labeled for use on landscape ornamentals, non-bearing fruit and nut trees in nurseries; Christmas trees; ground covers; and ornamental plants in greenhouses, lath, and shadehouses, and interiorscapes.
