Syngenta Launches Corn Insecticide

After gaining Environmental Protection Agency registration, Syngenta Force 6.5G will be available for the 2019 growing season. It’s a high-load granular corn insecticide that provides control of corn rootworm.

“We are launching Force 6.5G to meet the changing needs of growers, said Meade McDonald, product lead for insecticides at Syngenta in a recent press release. “This higher-load formulation goes farther and results in fewer stops to refill insecticide boxes, which allows faster, more efficient planning with less hassle.

Force 6.5G can be applied in a wide variety of “open” system granular application equipment and features a 50% lower dust-off rate when compared to Force 3G. It comes in a 20-acre bag.

“Force 6.5G will deliver the same superior root protection and maximize yield potential, when used on either conventional corn or CRW traits (single or double stack),” McDonald said.
