HARVANTA and VERDEPRYN Insecticides Now Registered for Use in California

SummitAgro USA is pleased to announce that the California Department of Pesticide Regulation has recently granted registration approval for two insecticides containing the active ingredient CYCLAPRYN. These ground- breaking insecticides are HARVANTA and VERDEPRYN.

These IRAC 28 insecticides provide California growers with new tools for broad spectrum control of chewing and sucking insects in high-value crops. HARVANTA is labeled for leafy, fruiting and brassica (cole) vegetables along with cucurbits and strawberries. While VERDEPRYN is labeled for tree and fruit crops including pome fruit, stone fruit, grapes, berries, citrus and tree nuts.

“Both HARVANTA and VERDEPRYN benefit from the activity of CYCLAPRYN,” explained Eric Tedford, SummitAgro field R&D manager. “They are diamide insecticides that offer a control spectrum that is competitive with, or better than, most other diamide insecticides. For some pests, HARVANTA and VERDEPRYN provide adulticidal and larvicidal activity. In addition, HARVANTA and VERDEPRYN are fast acting with long residual control.”

HARVANTA 50SL insecticide and VERDEPRYN 100SL insecticide crop import tolerances are in the process of being established. Please confirm that tolerances required for the export of your crop have been obtained prior to use.

HARVANTA 50SL and VERDEPRYN 100SL insecticides may not be registered for sale or use in all states or counties. Please check with your local extension service to ensure registration status.
