Vestaron’s VST-006330-EP bio-pesticide registered in California

Vestaron Corporation, a developer of insect control products derived from naturally-occurring peptides, announced June 24 that its VST-006330-EP bio-pesticide has received a product registration and master label from the California Department of Pesticide Regulation.

This follows last year’s registration with the Environmental Protection Agency and subsequent label expansion last month.

VST-006330-EP will be commercialized under the SPEAR trade name later this year.

The product has been approved for the control of a variety of lepidopteran pests of high value crops, including cabbage, cucumber, onions, peppers, and tomatoes.

Additional registrations include field crops, commercial flowers, and ornamentals.

The product’s active ingredient utilizes two new modes of action to control insects which will help delay the emergence of insect resistance.

It also has a four-hour re-entry interval and zero-day post-harvest interval to maximize grower flexibility.
