New FMC Insecticide ELEVEST

David Owens, Extension Entomologist,

FMC is launching a new insecticide, ELEVEST, and is in the process of securing state registrations. It is unknown if or how much will be available for 2020. This product is a premix of chlorantraniliprole (g28) + bifenthrin (g3); this is similar chemistry to Besiege. It will be labeled for corn, soybean, sweet corn, peas and beans, and potatoes.
