Product Overview

Altacor® MaX insecticide brings broad-spectrum, residual control of the pests that matter most in many fruit and nut crops. Controlling eggs all the way through to adult pest stages, just a small amount of product can effectively control targeted pests by affecting muscle function.

When it comes to resistance management, it's important that foliar applications of Altacor® MaX insecticide ARE NOT made less than 60 days following an in-furrow or soil application, or planting of seed, or seed pieces treated with any Group 28 insecticide.
