BASF’s Fastac EC Insecticide Registered For Use

Growers looking for an effective pyrethroid now have a new option with Fastac EC insecticide from BASF Crop Protection. The new insecticide, which recently EPA registration, will be available for use for the 2013 season. Fastac EC insecticide is a Restricted Use Pesticide.

“Fastac EC insecticide is an effective new tool for growers looking to proactively manage a broad spectrum of insect pests,” said Luke Bozeman, Technical Market Manager, BASF. “Additionally, as a pyrethroid, Fastac EC insecticide provides residual control to manage key pests in many crops.”

The active ingredient in Fastac EC insecticide, alpha-cypermethrin, targets the nerve impulses of insects, which leads to effective control. Fastac EC insecticide controls a broad-spectrum of piercing-sucking and chewing pests, including aphids, beetles and stink bugs.

Combined with its low-dose rate and broad-crop label, which includes soybeans and cotton, Fastac EC insecticide is a welcome addition to the growing portfolio of crop protection products from BASF.

Fastac EC insecticide is an excellent tank-mix partner for BASF disease control and Plant Health innovations, including Priaxor fungicide for soybeans. The combination of Fastac EC insecticide and a BASF fungicide can add consistency to a grower’s yield potential.

Recent research from BASF demonstrates the benefits of a comprehensive pest, disease and weed control program. In field trials from 2011 and 2012, soybean fields treated with Fastac EC insecticide, Priaxor fungicide and a BASF residual weed control program averaged an additional 6.0 bu/A yield increase when compared to a two-pass non-residual glyphosate-based program.

“BASF is committed to providing growers with safe and effective products to help increase yield potential and promote Plant Health,” said Paul Rea, Vice President, U.S. Crop Protection, BASF. “BASF is dedicated to innovation, research and development, and the introduction of Fastac EC insecticide is another step BASF is taking to help growers get the most out of every acre.”
