The Environmental Protection Agency has registered Brigadier insecticide from Philadelphia-based FMC Corp. for use on potatoes.

The product, which contains the active ingredients bifenthrin, a pyrethroid, and imidacloprid, a neonicotinoid, is used at planting.

It targets several soilborne insects, including wireworms, according to a news release.

Brigadier also targets foliar-feeding insects such as Colorado potato beetle, aphids and leafhoppers.

Registrations are pending in several states.
