Miticide Label Now Includes Sweet Corn
Currently used to control two spotted spider mites on vegetable crops, the label for Syngenta’s Agri-Mek SC has been expanded to include soybeans and sweet corn.
The active ingredient in Agri-Mek SC, abamectin, is locally systemic and provides protection against mobile forms of spider mites. Upon application, abamectin penetrates the leaf and is rapidly absorbed into the leaf tissue, controlling mites on both the upper and lower leaf surfaces. This translaminar movement makes Agri-Mek SC rainfast once dry and provides residual control that lasts up to 21 days, according to Syngenta.
