Syngenta Canada Inc. is pleased to announce the registration of Voliam Xpress®, a new pre-mix insecticide that delivers multiple modes of action for control of a number of yield-robbing lepidopteran pests in corn.
“We are very excited about adding Voliam Xpress insecticide to our portfolio of crop protection products,” stated Eric Phillips, Asset Lead, Fungicides and Insecticides for Syngenta Canada Inc. “The multiple modes of action delivered in Voliam Xpress mean that corn growers can effectively protect their corn from damaging pests while managing insect resistance at the same time.”
Voliam Xpress is registered for use on corn, including field, pop and sweet types, as well as corn grown for seed production. Voliam Xpress protects corn against corn borer, corn earworm and western bean cutworm.
The two active ingredients in Voliam Xpress, chlorantraniliprole (Group 28) and lambda-cyhalothrin (Group 3), work together to provide fast knockdown and residual control of lepidopteran pests. The insecticide controls pests by contact and ingestion. The pre-mix controls all lifecycles of lepidopteran pests in the field with a single application. The ability to control adult moths and larvae while delivering ovicidal control makes Voliam Xpress a unique tool to corn growers.
Voliam Xpress is registered at low use rates and built with Syngenta patented formulation technology to deliver an easy-to-apply pre-mix formulation for applicators. Well-defined and acceptable Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) for key export markets are in place with the Voliam Xpress registration.
