Grochem launch Peregrine insecticide

Written by   Grochem Australia

Peregrine is a group 18 insecticide, the active is Methoxyfenozide which belongs to the Diacylhydrazine class of insecticides and has a novel mode of action.

The chemical operates primarily by ingestion but also by contact and has ovicidal activity.
It does not have systemic or translaminar properties, so excellent spray coverage is essential for optimum effect.
Target: lepidopterous insects
This insecticide targets lepidopterous insects and is therefore ideal in any IPM program.
Peregrine is non-toxic (oral and contact) to non-target insects—that includes predatory insects and bees.
It is classified as “Non-Toxic” to bees and is rated low in mammalian toxicity.
The product is long lasting and has residual activity for up to 21 days.
Crops
Peregrine is registered for the control of light brown apple moth on apples and pears (pome fruit) and for the control of various other Lepidopteran pests of apples and pears, avocado, coffee, custard apple, eggplant, longan, lychee, peppers (capsicum and chilli), okra, macadamia and tomatoes.
