Syngenta announced the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) granted additional registration approvals for the use of Besiege insecticide on sorghum, cereal grains and peanuts. Combatting yield-robbing insects is now attainable for more growers as this proven insecticide expands its reach. With dual-action chemistries, Besiege provides protection against key lepidopteran insect pests, including soybean looper, corn earworm, armyworm, sorghum webworm and tobacco budworm, as well as damaging secondary pests like stinkbugs and sorghum midge.

“Besiege is an excellent choice for hard-to-control lepidopteran species like corn earworm,” said John Koenig, insecticide technical product lead at Syngenta. “In addition to difficult worm pests, Besiege will control important non-lepidopteran pests including kudzu bug, grasshopper, bean leaf and Japanese beetle, and soybean aphid.”

In 2013 trials, Besiege performed well against corn earworm and other lepidopteran pests. In South Carolina trials, sorghum treated with Besiege out-yielded the closest competitor-treated sorghum by almost 17 bushels per acre. It also outperformed untreated sorghum by nearly 58 bushels per acre.

In addition to long-lasting insect control, Besiege provides added convenience for growers. Available as a premix formulation, Besiege offers robust rates and performance, while also eliminating the need for a tank mix. An insecticide with multiple benefits, Besiege provides residual coverage that targets destructive insect pests and enables sorghum, cereal grains, peanuts and various other crops to yield strong.
