Skyraider insecticide/miticide, manufactured by MANA, has received approval by the EPA for broad-spectrum control against soil and foliar insects on soybeans, cotton, potatoes and other crops.

New Skyraider is an optimized formulation of proven crop protection technology that includes two different modes of action. This advanced offering hosts an increased ratio of a pyrethroid to support rapid insect knockdown while delivering longer lasting residual, which is driven by the formulation’s neonicotinoid component.

MANA says Skyraider has unique attributes proven to perform equal to or better than the market leaders by delivering highly efficacious control of tough-to-manage pests like aphids, Lygus species, stink bugs and wireworms.

It provides both translaminar and systemic movement, which allows improved penetration and relocation of the active ingredients throughout the plant, including feeding sites on the underside of leaves.

“With this kind of systemic activity, Skyraider has a clear-cut advantage in controlling foliar insects, including aphids,” said Dave Rummel, MANA brand leader. “At recommended rates, it also controls mites, which several competitors don’t support as part of their insect control lineup.”

Extensive field trials have delivered high performance ratings for Skyraider in regard to efficacy and economic value in addition to performance advantages over several competitive products.

On potatoes, Rummel indicates that the Skyraider label includes wireworms and Colorado potato beetle, which are two pests that require growers to remain on constant high alert.

“Skyraider is a premier insecticide with differentiating performance advantages,” said Rummel. “We’re proud of this new MANA offering and its rapid acceptance as one of the most powerful pest control tools available to date. Pests can’t run or hide from Skyraider.”

Convenience in handling

The Skyraider formulation and packaging delivers simplified handling and preparation steps for growers and applicators prior to treatments in comparison to other insecticide inputs.

“The formulation is easy to use and offers a more optimized use rate while protecting the grower’s investment along with time savings,” Rummel added. “It also offers the convenience of one product for multiple crop uses.

“Skyraider will be a critical tool for growers who want protection from high levels of insect infestation. And, with two different modes of action in a single application, it’s a perfect fit in a complete insect management program.”
