New insecticide label information for compounds listed in 2018 E-154: MSU Fruit Management Guide E-154 product numbers are in parenthesis ().

 Closer (8) (sufloxaflor). Note that on October 14, 2016, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) re-established the registration for products containing sulfoxaflor (Isoclast® Active): Closer SC insecticide. This re-established registration will allow for post-bloom usage on pome fruit, stone fruit, grapes and tree nuts. This registration has a downwind buffer zone included and restricts tank-mixing with products containing certain active ingredients.  

Verdepryn (22) (cyclaniliprole, Cyclapryn®) belongs to the diamide class of insecticides, which work on the insect by activating ryanodine receptors, thus preventing muscle contraction. While the active ingredient Cyclapryn® (cyclaniliprole) is already registered for use in vegetable crops under the trade name Harvanta™, Verdepryn™ 100SL (not currently available for sale or distribution) is expecting USEPA registration in 2018 for pome fruits, stone fruits and grapes for control of a range of pests including leafrollers, codling moth, Oriental fruit moth, plum curculio, aphids, white apple leafhopper, pear psylla, grape berry moth, Japanese beetle, Rhagolitis fruit flies, spotted wing drosophila and fruitworms. Cyclapryn® has shown to be relatively safe on most beneficials.”

Minecto Pro (25) (cyantraniliprole + abamectin) is an insecticide/miticide that combines two active ingredients as a pre-mix formulated compound. Minecto Pro is registered for use in pome and stone fruits, targeting mites, leafminers, leafrollers, psylla, plum curculio, codling moth, oriental fruitmoth, leafrollers and fruit flies. Minecto Pro holds the combined performance attributes of the cyantraniliprole and abamectin chemistries. For the purposes of resistance management do not make more than two sequential applications of Minecto Pro, and products containing either one of cyantraniliprole or abamectin should not be used in the subsequent generation. The maximum yearly amount of Minecto Pro to be applied is 24 oz per season.

Cormoran (26) (novaluron + acetamiprid) is an insecticide that combines two active ingredients as a pre-mix formulated compound. Cormoran is registered for use in pome and stone fruits, blueberries and strawberries targeting aphids, leafhoppers, leafrollers, fruitworms, codling moth, oriental fruitmoth, stinkbugs (BMSB) and fruit flies (SWD). Cormoran holds the combined performance attributes of the novaluron and acetamiprid chemistries. For the purposes of resistance management, products containing either one of novaluron and acetamiprid shouldn’t be used in the subsequent generation. The maximum yearly amount of Cormoran to be applied is 35 fl oz in strawberries, 89 fl oz in blueberries, and 95 fl oz in pome and stone fruits per season.
