Insecticide Update: Sivanto HL

David Owens, Extension Entomologist,

Early this year, Bayer released Sivanto HL, a higher concentration version of Sivanto Prime. It is a good aphid, whitefly, leafhopper, and some sucking bugs product, mode of action group 4D. It is also much softer on bees than most other group 4 insecticides. It is translaminar, and will translocate from application site to growing points. It is suggested to use a spreader/penetrant type adjuvant.
