Prevathon® Insect Control

Prevathon® Insect Control Helps Deliver Better Yield and Quality

Prevathon® helps provide higher yields and better quality with reduced insect control applications, plus freedom in seed selection.

Prevathon® insect control delivers effective control of yield-reducing worms in cotton, corn, cereals, soybeans, peanuts, sunflower, sugarcane, alfalfa, pasture and grasses. Powered by Rynaxypyr®, Prevathon® delivers excellent crop protection to even those pests that have developed resistance to products with other modes of action.

Key species controlled include cotton bollworm, armyworm, corn earworm, European corn borer, sugarcane borer and other key worm complexes, reducing crop damage while increasing crop quality and yield. Prevathon® works through ingestion, contact, ovicidal* and ovi-larvicidal activity for excellent, fast-acting insect control. Its strong residual activity reduces the number of required applications. The short 4-hour re-entry period allows growers to better manage workload.

Because Prevathon® works on both conventional and non-conventional seed varieties, growers have more options to help them reach the optimum potential of every acre.
