Innvictis Crop Care, LLC announced the launch of a patented and proprietary S Technology. Developed and tested in 2012 and 2013 the new technology will be included in two products being launched by Innvictis. S Technology was developed to mitigate pesticide loss and poor performance due to stressful environmental conditions.

Avenger S^3 insecticide is the “crown jewel new product of the family” of products that will contain the new technology, Innvictis announced. Avenger S^3 is a three-way mixture of Imidacloprid, bifenthrin and S^3. 

Innvictis also has received federal registration for Avatar S^2; this herbicide combines the active ingredient clethodim with S Technology creating a “supercharged” post grass herbicide. 

Patented S^3 Technology has been premixed into Avenger S^3 to provide systemic activity for high product performance. S^3 Technology attaches to the pesticide molecule and leads it through the plant for greater systemicity and better activity, according to Greg McManic, director of research and development at Innvictis.

“To demonstrate the dramatic improvement S^3 offers, we did an extensive C14 test where we radiolabeled standard imidacloprid and Avenger S^3. The standard imidacloprid, generally known as a systemic product, only resulted in about 14 percent plant uptake. The Avenger S^3 demonstrated a 60 percent level of plant uptake. That is an incredible difference due to the insertion of the S^3 Technology,” McManic said. “Each droplet is essentially super charged. The benefit to this is that under stressful conditions; whether hot/dry, cold/wet or low water volumes, the droplets that do hit the target are highly active and help mitigate the environmental challenges. This results in increased efficacy and better control.”

As for Avatar S^2 herbicide, the benefit to this mixture is that the S Technology will improve the performance of standard clethodim herbicides by improving its systemicity resulting in better and faster plant uptake and better performance in high stress or heavy foliage conditions, the company contends. 

“In the same way that S^3 Technology improves imidacloprid, Avatar S^2 will be a top performing post grass herbicide. This will be especially evident in hot, dry conditions or where good coverage is difficult to achieve due to environmental or mechanical stress,” noted McManic.

Both products are registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and are expected to be available for the 2014 growing season.
