Greensboro, North Carolina (July 31, 2008)--Syngenta Crop Protection announced today that the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a Section 3 registration for the use of Endigo™ insecticide on soybeans.
With proven success in cotton, Endigo insecticide protects against key soybean foliar insect pests that damage the crop during reproductive growth stages. As a superior tool for resistance management, Endigo combines the proven performance of lambda-cyhalothrin and thiamethoxam, offering effective knockdown and long residual control of a broad range of damaging pests, such as soybean aphid, bean leaf beetle, Japanese beetle, grasshoppers, worms and stink bugs.
“We believe the registration for Endigo on soybeans will be helpful for growers who experience infestations of tough damaging pests, especially stink bugs, bean leaf beetle, Japanese beetle and soybean aphid,” said Jeff Cecil, insecticide brand manager with Syngenta Crop Protection. “Endigo is an excellent broad spectrum foliar product, and with full rates of two modes of action in a single application, will be an exceptional fit in a complete soybean insect management program.”
Initial sales of Endigo insecticide will begin this year in the southern United States. Syngenta has planned a limited launch for 2009 with a full launch of Endigo insecticide anticipated for 2010 to allow for adequate market supply.
