Bayer launches Belt insecticide against cane borer in Brazil

Bayer announced the launch of insecticide Belt (Flubendiamide) in Brazil for the control of the cane borer. 
It is already widely used against plagues on cotton, corn, soybeans, and tomato. The product has a wide-action spectrum, mostly against caterpillars.
“Belt presents an elevated efficiency and rapid action control. The caterpillars stop to feed for two hours after entering in contact with the product as its mode of action interrupts the insect’s capacity of feeding because it affects its muscular system,” explained the sugarcane market developer at Bayer, Antonio Soares.
Soares, who participated in the project, “Caminhos da Cana” in Ribeirao Preto, Sao Paulo, highlighted after the proceedings that Flubendiamide is a product with physical, chemical and unique characteristics. “Belt has an elevated efficiency, control, and selectivity, even after being washed away by rains, and the absence of decomposition.” 
According to the Brazilian National Agricultural Research Company (Embrapa), the cane borer is a major pest of sugarcane. The young caterpillar feeds initially on the leaves after penetrating through the parts of the clump, provoking weight loss, withering and wilting.
