Syngenta Crop Protection of Raleigh, N.C., received registrations in three key vegetable-growing states for its new insecticide, Durivo.

Those states are Florida, Texas and Arizona. It is not yet registered in New York or California. Durivo already has a federal Section 3 registration.

Durivo is registered for use in vegetable crops, inclduing leafy and fruiting vegetables, Brassicas and cucurbits. It is a combination of chlorantraniliprole, a new mode of action from the diamide family of insecticides, and thiamethoxam, a neonicotinoid.

Durivo targets lepidopteran pests, as well as chewing and sucking insects, such as aphids and whiteflies.

The product label calls for soil application through drip irrigation. Once applied, roots of germinating seedlings or transplants take it up, and the xylem translocates the product throughout the plant, according to a news release.
