Endigo Soybean Insecticide OK’d
EPA has issued a Section 3 registration for the use of Syngenta Crop Protection’s Endigo insecticide on soybeans.
With proven success in cotton, Endigo insecticide protects against key soybean foliar insect pests that damage the crop during reproductive growth stages. According to Syngenta, as a superior tool for resistance management, Endigo combines the proven performance of lambda-cyhalothrin and thiamethoxam. The pair offer effective knockdown and long residual control of a broad range of damaging pests, such as soybean aphid, bean leaf beetle, Japanese beetle, grasshoppers, worms, and stink bugs.
Initial sales of Endigo insecticide, a restricted use pesticide, will begin this year in the southern U.S. Syngenta has planned a limited launch for 2009 with a full launch of Endigo insecticide anticipated for 2010 to allow for adequate market supply.
