Low-odor Lorsban available

Dow AgroSciences recently received federal registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for new Lorsban Advanced insecticide. Lorsban Advanced offers the same benefits of Lorsban-4E but uses innovative technology to produce a low-odor, water-based formulation.

“Dow AgroSciences is excited to offer an improvement on a trusted solution that growers have come to rely on,” says Brian Timmerman, product manager for Lorsban Advanced.

Lorsban Advanced contains the active ingredient chlorpyrifos — the same as in Lorsban-4E, one of the most widely used insecticides in agriculture. The new product replaced Lorsban-4E in the marketplace in January 2009.

Lorsban Advanced is formulated as an emulsion in water (EW). This water-based formulation differs from Lorsban-4E, which is an emulsifiable concentrate. It is the only chlorpyrifos-containing insecticide available as an EW in the United States.

Lorsban Advanced offers growers superb versatility to control insects in soybeans, corn, wheat, pome fruit, tree nuts, grapes, citrus, vegetables and other crops. The insecticide provides superior control of all cutworm species as well as broad-spectrum control of aphids, scale, spider mites, citrus psylla, lepidopterous insects and other pests.
