Insect Resistance Management
Over time, insect pests have the ability to develop resistance, or become less sensitive to control tools. When this happens, insecticides that have worked in the past, no longer achieve the expected level of control when used according to label recommendations. New chemistries offer new methods of control, to ensure that farmers can take action to guard against destructive pests.
As the first and only sulfoximine insecticide, Isoclast™ active is highly effective against populations of sap-feeding insects that are resistant to other insecticides, including neonicotinoids.
Isoclast controls insect pests both on contact and through ingestion to provide fast acting and long lasting control. Because of its unique properties and broad lack of cross-resistance, Isoclast is an important rotation partner with other insecticides and will enhance insect resistance management (IRM) strategies.
