Exirel™ Insecticide Label Expansion
Mississauga, Ontario - June 13, 2014 – The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) in Canada has granted additional label expansion approvals for DuPont™ Exirel™ insecticide for fruit and vegetable growers.
Fruit and vegetable growers may now use Exirel™ insecticide for managing hard-to-control black vine weevil and clay coloured weevil in bushberries, as well as flea beetles in tuberous, corm, brassica and fruiting vegetables. This label expansion comes just months after other recent label expansions that have approved Exirel™ for the control of spotted wing drosophila in stone fruits and blueberries.
“Until now, growers have had limited options for managing these yield damaging pests,” says Ray Janssen, Horticulture Segment Manager with DuPont Crop Protection. “DuPont™ Exirel™ is powered by Cyazypyr™, the first active ingredient to control a cross-spectrum of chewing and sucking pests. Cyazypyr™ provides consistently excellent insect control, and also serves as an excellent resistance management tool.”
When applied early in the crop life, Exirel™ can increase the opportunity for improved marketable yield by reducing feeding damage. The result is a stronger crop in the field and a more appealing crop at harvest.
