Syngenta's Ballista receives EPA registration

Insecticide controls both CRW and secondary pests, including grubs, maggots and wireworms.

Syngenta’s Ballista LFC insecticide has received registration from EPA.

Syngenta trials have shown that Ballista LFC controls both CRW and secondary pests, including grubs, maggots and wireworms. Combined with CRW traits, Ballista LFC delivers consistent and convenient control of these pests.

“Consistent and convenient control in an insecticide is a priority for growers looking to protect their yields,” said Brett Lackey, product lead for Syngenta. “Use of Ballista LFC will be most appropriate on CRW-traited corn in low-pressure areas or when there is a need to control secondary pests not controlled by traits.”

The insecticide’s active ingredient, lambda-cyhalothrin, is an industry standard for broad-spectrum insect control. For added convenience, Ballista LFC is compatible with a wide range of liquid fertilizers.

State registrations for Ballista LFC are pending.
