Diflumax 2L insect growth regulator gains federal Section 3 registration

HELM AGRO US, Inc. has received Section 3 registration from the Environmental Protection Agency for the company's new Diflumax 2L insecticide-miticide. 

Diflumax 2L, which includes the active ingredient diflubenzuron, delivers broad-spectrum insect control in many field and row crops, orchard crops, and non-crop areas.

Diflumax 2L controls a broad-spectrum of key insect pests, including armyworms, grasshoppers, Mormon crickets, pear psylla, codling moth, leafminers, Asian citrus psyllid, citrus rust mite, and other pests.

The product can be used on crops ranging from soybeans, cotton, and wheat to citrus, stone fruit (excluding cherries), and tree nuts.  It can even be used in non-crop areas, grasslands, and CRP land.

Since it provides a wide margin of safety to beneficial insects and pollinators, HELM AGRO says Diflumax 2L is a good fit for integrated pest management programs.  In addition, its insect growth regulator properties make it an important component in resistance management programs.

Diflumax 2L contains two pounds of diflubenzuron per gallon of product and comes in 4 X 1-gallon cases with 48 cases per pallet.
