Cimegra insecticide registered in potatoes

BASF Canada Agricultural Solutions has received registration for the active ingredient broflanilide. The insecticide, to be called Cimegra, is the first IRAC Group 30 available in Canada. 

 

With its new mode of action, broflanilide targets all wireworm larval stages which helps suppress and control potential seasonal recovery of wireworm populations. While prior solutions intoxicated wireworms, leaving a potential for their recovery, broflanilide binds to the wireworm’s central nervous system causing hyperactivity of nerves and muscles, which ultimately eliminates the pest altogether. 

 

“Cimegra insecticide has demonstrated great performance and can be easily incorporated into an integrated pest management strategy,” says Allison Friesen, technical market specialist, insecticides and seed treatment, BASF Agricultural Solutions Canada. “It offers a unique mode of action that delivers lasting efficacy with no known resistance, making it an excellent new tool for the management of wireworms.”
