Intrepid Edge logoThe Environmental Protection Agency has registered Intrepid Edge, an insecticide premix from Dow AgroSciences, Indianapolis.

State registrations, except for New York, are pending, according to a news release.

The product is a mixture of the active ingredients in Radiant or Delegate (spinetoram) and Intrepid 2F (methoxyfenozide), according to the label.

Spinetoram provides quick knockdown, whereas methoxyfenozide is an insect growth regulator.

They control through contact and ingestion.

Unlike some premixes, Intrepid Edge does not flare mites and has minimal impact on beneficial insects, according to a release.

The premix is labeled for lepidoptera pests, including beet armyworm, cabbage looper, fall armyworm, grape berry moth, European grapevine moth, grape leaf skeletonizer, light brown apple moth, omnivorous leafroller and orange tortrix.

It is labeled for several crops, including almonds, walnuts, pecans, pistachios and grapes.
