Rynaxypyr® Chemistry Controls Insects Quickly

DuPont™ Rynaxypyr® insect control quickly controls important Lepidoptera pests and other selected species, keeping populations in check to maximize yields. It’s the first insecticide from the anthranilic diamide class of chemistry and is registered for use on vegetables, pome and stone fruit, tree nuts, grapes, corn, cotton and many other crops.

Rynaxypyr® activates the insect ryanodine receptors that play a critical role in muscle function. Target insects stop feeding within minutes upon contact or ingestion. Rynaxypyr® products deliver strong residual activity and excellent rainfast properties delivering nearly immediate and long-lasting plant protection under a range of growing conditions. Because of this novel mode of action, when used according to the label, Rynaxypyr® preserves beneficial insects while controlling pests that have become resistant to other insecticides, making it an excellent partner in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs.

Rynaxypyr® combines both ovicidal, on labeled pests, ovi-larvicidal, and larvicidal activity:

  • When applied at the time of egg lay, the long-lasting activity prevents the establishment and growth of pest populations.
  • Delivers unprecedented larval control when compared to commercial standards.

Products powered by Rynaxypyr® include DuPont™ Altacor® , DuPont™ Coragen® and DuPont™ Prevathon® insect control.
