Biological Pest Control
Crossover is the first-ever insecticide plus fungicide premix formulated into a convenient and stable emulsifiable concentrate product. The product, developed by Innvictis Crop Care, LLC, combines a triazole fungicide with a pyrethroid insecticide to control a wide pest spectrum, such as rust, leaf blight and powdery mildew, as well as insects such as cutworm, armyworm, earworm, grasshoppers, stink bugs, thrips and aphids. Crossover can be used in soybeans as an early season foliar "recharge" or in the R5 and R7 windows. It can be mixed with strobilurin fungicides to round out disease control in corn and soybeans. It can also serve as an all-in-one in early season wheat with rust and insect pressure. Crossover has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency and is available for the 2014 season.
