Beleaf has been a highly effective treatment for control of aphids in fruit and vegetable crops, and with recent full registrations and widespread availability, the product remains a convenient choice for growers.
FMC Corporation recently announced full registration for Beleaf 50SG insecticide for both the U.S. and Canada. With full registrations now in place, Canadian MRLs have been established, allowing commodities treated with Beleaf to move into the Canadian channels of trade.
“Beleaf has been a highly effective treatment for control of aphids in fruit and vegetable crops, and with recent full registrations and widespread availability, the product remains a convenient choice for growers,” said Bob Leifker, product manager for FMC Agricultural Products. “Beleaf 50SG controls insects before they damage the plant, making it an effective choice as part of an overall pest management program.”
Easy on beneficials, Beleaf 50SG is effective on the A-Type Potassium channel of an insect’s nervous system. The insecticide controls pests at contact and ingestion, providing an anti-feeding mode of action that stops feeding in as little as 30 minutes and in turn, protects plants from severe insect damage and disease. In addition, it has a convenient zero day pre-harvest interval on most crops.
Beleaf 50SG is an effective choice for controlling key pests including aphids in a number of crops including apples, leafy vegetables, tomatoes, potatoes and cucurbits. For more information on Beleaf 50SG and other FMC agricultural products, visit http://www.fmccrop.com/.
