Arvesta Corporation plans to introduce a new insecticide and a new miticide in 2004. Clothianidin is a novel neonicotinoid insecticide that will be marketed under the trade names of Clutch for foliar uses on pomefruit and tobacco, and as Belay for soil applied treatments in tobacco.

Acequinocyl is the chemical name of a new unique mode of action miticide for use on agronomic crops. Acequinocyl will be marketed under the trade name Kanemite and will be labeled for use in pome fruit, citrus, almonds and strawberries.

Both Clothianidin and Acequinocyl have very favorable toxicology and ecological profiles. EPA has granted Clutch an OP replacement status and Kanemite has been approved as a reduced risk compound.

Details of the trial results and an update on the regulatory status of these products will be provided.

Species 1: LEPIDOPTERA Tortricidae Cydia pomonella (Codling Moth)
Species 2: ACARI Tetranychidae Tetranychus urticae (Two-Spotted Spider Mite)
