Nufarm insecticide receives 24(c) label in New York

March 20, 2019 -  By

Safari 20 SG from Nufarm has received a 24(c) label for controlling the spotted lanternfly in New York.

This follows 2(ee) approval to control the spotted lanternfly in 15 states: Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Main, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia.

The spotted lanternfly is an invasive plant hopper invading and spreading in the northeastern U.S. The pest impacts more than 70 host plants, which, if infested, would result in significant damage and loss to nursery operations, Nufarm said.

Safari 20 SG supplemental labels are approved for use in containerized and field grown (in-ground) ornamental plants in nurseries, outdoor landscapes, tree plantations and reforestation nurseries. It includes national, private and state forests and wooded areas. The label provides application that include foliar spray, media drench, soil drench or basal trunk spray.

Safari is a supersystemic insecticide with quick uptake and knockdown of tree, shrub and herbaceous ornamental pests, Nufarm said. It controls a broad spectrum of invasive pests including Q- and B-biotype whiteflies, emerald ash borers, mealybugs, leafhoppers, leafminers and armored and soft scales — and now both nymph- and adult-stage spotted lanternflies.

“The spotted lanternfly may be one of the most devastating invaders the U.S. has combatted,” said Jason Fausey, Nufarm’s turf & ornamental director of technical services. “Safari is a proven leader when it comes to turning the tide on costly insect invasion and an important course of action for the ornamental and nursery growers.”
