Summit Agro USA announces EPA approval of HARVANTA 50SL insecticide, now available to U.S. vegetable growers for use on fruiting vegetables, cucurbits, leafy vegetables and brassica (cole) vegetables. 
 
Containing the proprietary active ingredient CYCLAPRYN, HARVANTA 50SL is a new broad-spectrum diamide insecticide. HARVANTA 50SL has consistently demonstrated equal or superior control of the most troublesome insects in vegetables, compared to existing diamides and other classes of insecticides, including pests resistant to organophosphate, pyrethroid and carbamate insecticides. Trials show that it has excellent efficacy against Lepidoptera insects, including Diamondback moth, a major economic pest in vegetables. 
 
HARVANTA 50SL provides this high level of control while using less active ingredient per acre as compared to other IRAC Group 28 insecticides. It has an excellent safety profile with beneficial arthropods. 
 
"We are proud to first bring this new chemistry to the United States," says Fred Yates, product manager at Summit Agro USA. "We think vegetable growers will find multiple benefits. In addition to a broad spectrum of activity it is fast acting, with long residual control. HARVANTA has also shown excellent larvicidal activity with adulticidal activity in many insect species. It is an excellent addition to their Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and Insect Resistance Management (IRM) programs." 
 
HARVANTA 50SL insecticide is distributed in the USA by Summit Agro USA LLC, and sold exclusively through Tenkoz member companies and Helena Chemical Company. For more information, visit summitagro-usa.com or call your local Tenkoz or Helena representative. HARVANTA 50SL will initially be available to vegetable growers in the Eastern US, with a national distribution planned for the 2018 crop year. 
 
Summit Agro USA LLC, headquartered in Durham, North Carolina, is dedicated to developing new chemistry to address the crop protection challenges facing high value growers. 
 
Helena Chemical Company, headquartered outside of Memphis in Collierville, Tennessee, is one of the nation's foremost agricultural and specialty formulators and distributors in the United States. 
 
Tenkoz, headquartered in North Metro Atlanta is the largest distribution entity for crop protection products in the United States.
