The Environmental Protection Agency has registered Paradigm insecticide from MANA Crop Protection of Raleigh, N.C.
The product contains the active ingredient lambda-cyhalothrin in a new low-odor formulation, according to a news release.
Paradigm has the same quick knock-down as earlier EC (emulsifiable concentrate) products but in a new formulation with a safer profile, according to the release.
The insecticide also meets California’s requirement for low VOCs, or volatile organic compounds.
Paradigm is labeled for controlling a host of pests, including armyworms, cutworms, loopers, beetles and aphids, according to the release.
It is labeled for use on more than 50 crops, including lettuce, almonds, onions, tomatoes, apples, potatoes, cabbage, beans, peppers, melons and squash.
