Innvictis Crop Care, LLC, www.innvictis.com, announced the launch of a first of its kind crop protection product. Crossover is an insecticide plus fungicide premix formulated into a convenient and stable Emulsifiable Concentrate.

“Crossover is a product we developed as a ‘jack of all trades’ to fit into several windows.  Because it combines a triazole fungicide with a pyrethroid insecticide, it brings a truly unique foliar pest spectrum. Priced affordably, it can serve as an all-in-one in early season wheat markets where many fields often have a combination of rust and insects that are easily controlled by this mixture. Crossover can also be used in soybeans as an early season foliar "recharge” or in the R5 and R7 windows when early season pests and disease attack the crop.  It can be mixed with strobilurin fungicides to round out disease control in both corn and soybean applications. Frankly, it is a very flexible product with a truly unique foliar pest spectrum,” states Casey McDaniel, director of commercial operations at Innvictis Crop Care, LLC.

With a unique pest spectrum that includes diseases like rust, leaf blight and powdery mildew as well as insects such as cutworm, armyworm, earworm, grasshoppers, stinkbugs, thrips and aphids, Crossover was created to offer convenient and cost effective control of diseases and pests when treatment threshold levels of these pests exist. “As growers become larger and fields become bigger, Crossover is able to help take pest variability out of the equation as growers drive yield increases through pest control.  Crossover is an ideal “bolt on” to many foliar applications that can help round out pest control,” says McDaniel.

Crossover has been approved by the U.S. EPA and will be available to sale in the 2014 growing season.
