TheU.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted FMC Corporation registration for Vantacorinsect control in a range of crops including cotton, soybeans, corn, peanuts, potatoes, sweet corn, sugarcane and onions.

Vantacor is a highly concentrated formulation of Rynaxypyractive the industry standard for long residual control of Lepidopteran pests. It offers the same pest spectrum and activity as Prevathoninsect control powered by Rynaxypyrbut with a much lower use rate typically 0.7-2.0 fluid ounces per acre compared to 14-20 fluid ounces per acre. It also offers extended residual control of key worm species, reducing the need for multiple applications per season.

All the things growers know and love about Prevathon insect control extended control of Lepidopterans, tank-mix flexibility, no flaring of mites or aphids and preservation of many important beneficial insects are also conveyed by Vantacor insect control, says John McCool, FMC Insecticides Product Manager. In addition, the new formulation offers improved mixing, low use rates and less packaging. That means growers will spend less time handling and hauling jugs, shuttles and pumps to and from fields. Overall, it enhances growers productivity whether its in the form of time or fuel savings.

The list of Lepidopteran pests controlled by Vantacor includes:

FMC is committed to delivering products that maintain a safe and secure food supply with minimal impact on the planet. The company has pledged to invest 100% of its research and development spend on sustainably advantaged products by 2025.

Vantacor insect control is an example of FMC using its formulation expertise to shrink our environmental footprint while still delivering reliable insect control,says McCool. Thats a win for the grower, the environment and FMC.
