US approval for Chemtura's DoubleTake

Chemtura AgroSolutions has received US approval for a broad-spectrum insecticide based on two established active ingredients. DoubleTake (diflubenzuron + lambda-cyhalothrin) provides knock-down and residual control of insect pests on soybeans, peanuts, cotton and peppers, the company points out. It is effective against two fast-emerging pests, marmorated stink bugs (Halyomorpha halys) and kudzu bugs (Megacopta cribraria), Chemtura adds. By combining diflubenzuron with another active ingredient, the company has extended the life cycle of its proprietary ai and "created a product that differentiates itself in the marketplace", says marketing manager Don Guy.
