Syngenta debuts Excelto in Chile
Syngenta has launched a novel combination insecticide in Chile based on two established active ingredients. Excelto (thiamethoxam 200 g/litre + tefluthrin 80 g/litre) is a suspension concentrate formulation seed treatment. It controls aphids on barley and wheat including rose grass aphids (Metopolophium dirhodum), oat aphids (Rhopalosiphum padi), and cowpea aphids (Sitobion avenae), at 300 ml/kg. It is also for use on ryegrass prairies for the control of white grubs (Hylamorpha elegans) at 1-1.5 litres/kg.
