Lorsban Advanced insecticide from Dow AgroSciences has been approved by EPA. It will replace another product from the manufacturer.
The insecticide will replace Lorsban-4E in the marketplace starting this month. Lorsban Advanced contains the same active ingredient (chlorpyrifos), use rates, and benefits as its predecessor but uses innovative technology to produce a low-odor, water-based formulation.
Lorsban Advanced is formulated as an emulsion in water (EW). This water-based formulation differs from Lorsban-4E, which is an emulsifiable concentrate. It is the only chlorpyrifos-containing insecticide available as an EW in the U.S.
Lorsban Advanced offers growers superb versatility to control insects in soybeans, corn, wheat, pome fruit, tree nuts, grapes, citrus, vegetables, and other crops. The insecticide provides superior control of all cutworm species as well as broadspectrum control of aphids, scale, spider mites, citrus psylla, lepidopterous insects, and other pests. It also offers efficacy, quick knockdown, residual control, and tankmix flexibility.
