Fortenza registered for insecticide seed treatment for corn and cotton

Fortenza seed treatment insecticide has received registration approval from EPA for use on corn and cotton to guard against early-season insect damage.

Fortenza seed treatment insecticide from Syngenta has received registration approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for use on corn and cotton to guard against early-season insect damage.

The active ingredient in Fortenza, cyantraniliprole, is labeled to protect against above- and below-ground insects, including black cutworm, fall armyworm, white grub, seedcorn maggot and wireworm. This is especially important to growers who are located in areas with high cutworm history. In corn, Fortenza seed treatment insecticide is a tool for growers that have a corn hybrid with black cutworm susceptibility.

“We designed Fortenza to complement our brands containing Cruiser insecticide, and data shows combining these products enhances the spectrum of insect control activity, raising the bar of protection for U.S. growers,” said Dale Ireland, Ph.D., Seedcare technical product lead, Syngenta. “This combination will provide the most comprehensive early-season insect protection in the corn seed treatment market.” 

Fortenza may also help manage insect resistance, when used in combination with other insecticide chemistries or traits, by providing an additional mode of action against targeted insects.
