A new insecticide offers protection against aphids, stinkbugs and other pests is available from FMC Corporation. The new Triple Crown insecticide offers three methods of protection against insects in soybeans, corn and cotton.

Triple Crown is a combination pyrethroid and neo-nicotinoid insecticide that offers post-systemic and contact activity in the plant. It translaminar activity penetrates the leaf to control pests with piercing or suckling mouth parts, including aphids, according to FMC. It also provides excellent control of other key pests, including worms, stinkbugs and plant bugs, among other foliar insects.

Offered as a premix formulation, Triple Crown mixes well with herbicides, fungicides and foliar feeds, reports Joe Reed, FMC technical sales representative. “The insecticide is ideal for quick knockdown and long control of foliar insects in soybean and other crops and when used in a pest management program.

 “Triple Crown complements other FMC insecticides, including Heroand Stallion, which can be used in soybeans, cotton and other crops,” Reedadds.“We are excited about the addition of Triple Crown to the overall FMC insecticide portfolio.”
