Sivanto Prime

Overview


Sivanto Prime insecticide precisely targets key damaging pests like aphids, leafhoppers, blueberry maggot, scale and psyllids while at the same time having a favourable safety profile for many beneficial insects. Plus it works quickly, which helps preserve the overall health of your crops, stops the spread of diseases and most importantly, protects your investment.

  • The first insecticide in a new chemical sub-class, Group 4D, Sivanto Prime combines proven Group 4 insecticide efficacy with a favourable safety profile for many beneficial insects
  • Provides a wide window of application, strong Integrated Pest Management (IPM) fit and multiple application methodologies
  • Minimal application timing restrictions allowing application based on pest thresholds not plant staging
  • Antifeedant properties and quick knockdown of adult pests mitigate primary disease spread and provide lasting protection against secondary spread of pathogens
  • Xylem mobility allows for systemic movement from a soil application to protect new plant growth
  • Registered for use on a wide range of crops, such as vegetables, tree fruit, vine crops, and other horticulture crops
  • Can be applied as a foliar treatment to all registered crops and as a soil treatment to grapes, fruiting vegetables and cucurbit vegetables
  • Short PHIs allow early season through late season applications
  • Translaminar and local systemic movement allows targeting of insects feeding on the underside of leaves
  • Sivanto Prime offers a three-prong ability to mitigate primary and secondary spread of insect-transmitted diseases:
    1. Sivanto Prime’s knockdown insecticidal activity quickly kills targeted adult and immature insect pests
    2. Sivanto Prime applied either as a foliar or soil treatment causes rapid feeding cessation, within 90 minutes of application, in many sucking insect pests including aphids, psyllids and whiteflies
    3. Excellent residual activity of Sivanto Prime provides ongoing control of insect vectors, preventing colonization and additional spread of plant pathogens

 

Application Tips


  • Prior to use of a surfactant with Sivanto Prime, the mixture must be tested in a small area to ensure no risk of phytotoxicity
  • Sivanto Prime mixed with oil may cause fruit injury to certain varieties of pears (e.g. d’Anjou), when used alone or when other products are applied sequentially. Follow precautions on oil labels and spray guides and avoid application when temperatures exceed 30°C within 24 hours of application. See label for more details.
  • Good coverage is important; product will not move to older leaves, as these leaves are not being fed by the plant’s transport system
  • Restricted Entry Interval (REI) for hand girdling of grapes is 24 hours. REI for all other crops and activities is 12 hours
  • Do not make any application of Sivanto Prime insecticide following a soil, in-furrow, or seed treatment application of a Group 4D Insecticide
  • Sivanto Prime belongs to the chemical subgroup 4D. The cross-resistance potential between subgroups (i.e. 4A, B and C) is higher than that between different groups, so rotation between subgroups should be avoided where possible
  • Registered for aerial application in root and tuber vegetables (Crop subgroups 1-B and 1-C), legume vegetables (Crop group 6) and corn

  1. Certain varieties of muskmelon have been shown to be sensitive to foliar application of Sivanto Prime insecticide potentially resulting in significant leaf necrosis. Do not make foliar applications of Sivanto Prime insecticide on muskmelon.
  2. Sivanto Prime mixed with oil may cause fruit injury to certain varieties of pears (e.g. d’Anjou), when used alone or when other products are applied sequentially. Follow precautions on oil labels and spray guides and avoid application when temperatures exceed 30°C within 24 hours of application. See label for more details.
  3. Refer to label for a complete list of registered crops within each Crop group.

Resistance Management


  • Where possible, rotate the use of Sivanto Prime or other Group 4D insecticides with different groups that control the same pests in a field.
  • Insecticide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, record keeping, and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.
  • Before spraying Sivanto Prime, correctly identify the pest and ensure economic and agronomic thresholds are met as recommended by local provincial or IPM specialists.
  • Monitor treated pest populations for resistance development.
  • Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or IPM recommendations for the specific site and pest problems in your area.
