AgraQuest announced it has recently received approval of REQUIEM® EC Miticide/Insecticide (active ingredient: Terpene Constituents of the Extract of Chenopodium ambrosioides near ambrosioides as Synthetically Manufactured) from the US EPA and from key states including California. REQUIEM EC is a new product label allowing use on a wide variety of fruit and vegetable crops, including tomatoes, cucurbits and vines.

REQUIEM EC provides effective reduction of populations of mites, thrips, aphids and whiteflies through multiple modes of action. REQUIEM EC is approved for the same crop uses as REQUIEM 25EC, its predecessor.

"REQUIEM EC maximizes performance through multiple modes of action," said Sarah Reiter, Director of Marketing for AgraQuest. "First, contact control reduces pest populations. Then the anti-feeding properties in REQUIEM EC have been proven to reduce crop damage and virus transmission that can occur when insects attack the crop."

REQUIEM EC offers the convenience of flexible timing and exemption from maximum residue levels (MRL) tolerances, making it an ideal insect control tool for high value fruits and vegetables, especially those headed for export markets. REQUIEM EC insecticide's unique, multiple modes of action also make it an excellent partner in insect resistance management programs.

"With the transition to REQUIEM EC in the U.S., all global markets will leverage the same technology platform," said Reiter. REQUIEM EC was recently approved for use in Mexico, and was submitted in 2011 for inclusion in the European Union's Annex One."
