Indianapolis, Indiana (July 10, 2007)--Dow AgroSciences announces that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has accepted label registration of new Cobalt™ insecticide for the broad-spectrum control of insects in row and selected specialty crops.


Cobalt delivers powerful, consistent broad-spectrum insect control. Cobalt combines fast knockdown with residual activity to control a wide variety of pests, including, but not limited to, aphids, beetles, grasshoppers, mites, worms, weevils and many other insects. Cobalt is registered for use in alfalfa, Brussels sprouts, corn (field, sweet and seed), cotton, sorghum (milo), soybeans, sunflowers, tree nuts (almond, filbert, pecan and walnut) and wheat.

Hank King, marketing specialist for Dow AgroSciences, calls Cobalt a new, high-performance insecticide with a great overall value proposition.

“Cobalt allows retailers and growers to address a wide variety of insect problems across multiple crops with the simplicity of one product,” King says.

New Cobalt™ Conquers Even the Toughest Insect Problems. Cobalt™ insecticide also is tank-mix compatible with most commonly used crop protection products, nutrients and adjuvants.
