Gowan Adds Soybean Insecticide To Portfolio
Gowan Co., LLC and Nisso America, Inc. have announced their Federal EPA registration of Justice insecticide for control of insect pests in soybeans. Gowan has exclusive rights to market Justice within the U.S. soybean market.
Justice insecticide is a dual mode of action premix containing the best in class neonicotinoid for aphid control, acetamiprid, and bifenthrin for fast knockdown of labeled insect pests and better resistance management.
“We are pleased to add another high quality product to our portfolio that enhances Gowan’s continuing efforts to provide our customers with solutions to their pest control problems,” said Chad Dyer, Justice Product Manager for Gowan Co. “Acetamiprid, the best active ingredient for aphid control, is finally approved for use in the soybean aphid market.”
While the primary insect target for Justice is soybean aphid, Justice will also be labeled for other insect pests including, armyworm, bean leaf beetle, and soybean looper.
Justice will be marketed as unique liquid oil flowable formulation that allows both active ingredients to remain in their most biologically active form.
“We are excited to have the OF (oil flowable) formulation of Justice,” said Dyer. “We tested a few different formulations, including an EC formulation, but the OF always outperformed the others in our field tests.”
Justice is a foliar applied insecticide with use rates ranging from 2.5 – 3.0 fluid ounces per acre. Justice has a 30 day PHI (pre-harvest interval), a 12-hour REI (restricted entry interval), and 0-day plant back interval for soybeans and a 30-day plant back interval for all other crops. In addition, Justice is approved for chemigation, ground rig. and aerial applications.
