FMC launches new optimized insecticide formulation ‘Coragen eVo’

New formulation delivers convenient, rapid and long-lasting residual control of major Lepidopteran pests in a variety of specialty crops

  • By ICN Bureau | December 11, 2023

FMC has launched Coragen eVo insect control powered by Rynaxypyr active for tobacco, brassica/cole crops, potatoes, tomatoes, lettuce, sweet corn, alfalfa, strawberries and other vegetable crops.

Coragen eVo insect control is a new, highly concentrated formulation of Rynaxypyr active, the industry standard for long-lasting, fast-acting protection against Lepidopteran pests.

This new product offers the same pest spectrum and activity as Coragen insect control powered by Rynaxypyr active, but with three times the active ingredient concentration, resulting in a lower formulated product use rate. Coragen eVo insect control has, for convenience, a common use rate of 1.7 ounces per acre or equivalent to approximately 1 quart per 20 acres. It easily tank mixes with other crop protection products, nutrients and adjuvants.

“Coragen insect control has been a revolutionary tool growers have trusted for years to protect their crops, and now we’ve evolved the formulation to enhance its capabilities,” states Chris Leon, Regional Technical Service Manager for FMC U.S.

“The higher active ingredient load in Coragen eVo insect control provides the same extended residual control, while also saving growers time and money by helping limit spray applications across a season. Strengthening existing technology is another way FMC is continuing to bring innovation to the market and advance agriculture.”

When used in accordance with the label, Coragen eVo insect control provides quick knockdown of targeted pests with extended residual control and has ovi-larvicidal, larvicidal and adult activity. This solution is the industry standard for Lepidopteran pest management, while also providing effective management of leafminer larvae and Colorado potato beetle, as well as suppression of whitefly nymphs and other labeled insects across a broad range of crops.

“The higher loading or concentration in Coragen eVo insect control means more convenience for our retail partners and grower customers having to handle, transport and store less packaging and product,” Leon says. “The transition to this new Coragen eVo insect control formulation allows lower use rates and a smaller package size, which improves operational efficiency. Coragen eVo insect control is another example of the FMC commitment to sustainability and reducing the cost to the grower in an ever-increasing competitive landscape.”
