Coragen® insecticide / West / Fruit & Veg, Potatoes

When problem insects like European corn borer and Colorado potato beetle are just too tough for other products, Coragen insecticide can help. Its unique mode of action targets hatching insects all the way through to adult stages of development, providing remarkable plant protection unmatched by other chemistries. That means reliable, consistent, long-lasting protection against key insects with minimal impact on many important beneficial species and pollinators. This unique environmental and toxicological profile, as well as its broad-spectrum and residual control, make Coragen insecticide a sound choice for potato and fruit and vegetable growers and applicators.

Product Overview

Coragen insecticide is an innovative product providing broad spectrum, extended control of many pests, including problem grasshoppers, moths, and midges. These and other pests are controlled through a novel mode of action – the activation of insect ryanodine receptors (RyRs) – that attacks muscle function and stops insects from feeding in as little as seven minutes.

Coragen insecticide delivers powerfully effective activity on European corn borer and Colorado potato beetle and has no cross-resistance to other registered insecticides. It controls hatching insects all the way through to the adult stages of development. This product is particularly potent against larvae as they hatch from the eggs (ovi-larvicidal activity), but also provides excellent control at the larvicidal stages.

Coragen insecticide can be used on a wide variety of crops, has a short (12 hour) reentry period, a pre-harvest interval of just 1 day for potatoes, and minimal impact on beneficial insects and pollinators. As such, it’s a strong tool for Integrated Pest Management programs. It's also very tank stable, mixable, and can be applied in a wide range of temperatures (between 4°C and 40°C).

Its effective control, coupled with a unique environmental and toxicological profile, makes Coragen insecticide a sound crop protection choice.
