Lasting Pepper Insect Control

Verimark® and Coragen® provide lasting pepper insect control.

Pepper growers are benefiting from lasting pepper insect control with help from DuPont Verimark® insect control powered by Cyazypyr® and DuPont Coragen® insect control powered by Rynaxypyr®.

As IPM program partners, Verimark® and Coragen® help growers produce stronger, more resilient crops to enhance yield and quality. Both provide valuable options for resistance management in spray programs that include DuPont Lannate® LV, DuPont Lannate® SP, DuPont Vydate® L, and DuPont Avaunt®.

Verimark® gets crops off to a strong start

Verimark® features a new mode of action that works quickly to protect crops from a cross spectrum of sucking and chewing pepper pests. Applied through transplant water, tray drench, drip chemigation or soil injection, Verimark® helps growers get pepper crops off to a strong start, creating an opportunity for improved yield.

Pepper Insect Control Program Options for a Strong Start
  • Helps manage highly prolific and difficult-to-control pests, including whiteflies, thrips, aphids, psyllids, leafminers, pepper weevil and several lepidopteran pest species.
  • Translocates from roots to leaves and redistributes as leaves expand, selectively controlling pests that feed on plant tissues without disrupting beneficial populations.
  • Demonstrated an average yield advantage of 9.1 percent as compared to the grower standard, in large plot tests conducted in Boca Raton, Florida.
  • Controlled early and midseason populations of immature whiteflies (PDF) better than the grower standard, even under the heaviest infestation of white adults in nearly a decade in southern Georgia.

Coragen® protects crops in season

Coragen® uses a breakthrough mode of action to deliver remarkable protection against biting and chewing pepper insect pests. An excellent environmental profile, flexible application and long residual control make Coragen® a valuable IPM partner for in-season pepper insect control.

  • Controls beet armyworm, European corn borer, many leafminers (larvae), loopers, tomato fruitworm, tomato pinworm, western yellowstriped armyworm, silverleaf whitefly (nymph suppression) and more (see product label for crop/pest combinations controlled or suppressed)
  • Insects stop feeding in minutes
  • No mite or secondary pest flaring
  • Long-lasting protection – 14 to 21 days and longer (depending on application method, untreated plant material may not be fully protected as a result of plant growth)
  • Rainfast when spray is dry
  • Shortest re-entry interval (4 hours) and shortest preharvest interval (1 day)
  • Registered for drip and foliar spray (ground and air)
  • Minimal impact on beneficials when applied at label rates
  • Partners with DuPont™ Tanos®  fungicide for enhanced disease control
