Movento® is the most effective solution for your potato, apple, grape and a number of vegetable crops. Spray before threshold is reached and its two-way systemic action and strong residual control will ensure aphids stay out, all season long. You’ll never forget the day Movento came, either. But for an entirely different reason altogether.
Movento (spirotetramat) is a Group 23 with a new mode of action from a class of chemistry called tetramic acid that acts as a Lipid Biosynthesis Inhibitor (LBI). As an LBI, Movento works by inhibiting the insect’s ability to produce lipids, resulting in symptoms of poisoning and subsequent death following exposure. Movento provides excellent, long-term control of immature and adult female stages of aphids, various species of scale, mealybugs and Phylloxera. Following a foliar application, Movento rapidly moves into leaf vascular tissue and is carried up and down the plant system to protect leaf and root tissue. Movento’s residual activity continues to protect new plant growth.
Bayer CropScience recently received registration for the use of Movento insecticide on soybeans in Canada.
Due to the fact that import MRL's (tolerances) do not yet exist in key export markets, Bayer CropScience has decided NOT to commercialize this product for use on soybeans in 2012.
Bayer CropScience is committed to responsible stewardship of its products and as such believe this decision is necessary to ensure no impact on Canadian export markets for soybeans. Bayer is working diligently to address this situation and gain the necessary global tolerance as quickly as possible.
