Vestaron Corporation recently announced approval from the EPA of its Spear-Lep bioinsecticide for control of lepidopterans in high-value field crops.

This approval makes Spear-Lep the second peptide-based product developed by Vestaron, following the full EPA approval and subsequent commercial launch of Spear-T for greenhouse crops this July.

The SPEAR family of bioinsecticides offer an unprecedented insect control solution - providing the efficacy of a synthetic with the safety profile of a biologic. These products have a zero-day pre-harvest interval and are designed to be non-toxic to mammals, birds, fish, honeybees and other beneficial insects.

"We are pleased to add yet another environmentally favorable product to growers' options for highly-effective pest control," said Anna Rath, Vestaron's Chief Executive Officer. "Spear-Lep will for the first time offer Vestaron's peptide-based, sustainable biopesticides to protect field-grown fruits, vegetables and other specialty crops against lepidopteran pests."

Full commercial availability of the Spear-Lep is expected in early 2019.
