Ridgeback™ Insecticide From Corteva Agriscience Delivers Both Trusted and Novel Control

INDIANAPOLIS — Soybean growers now have a new way to achieve broad-spectrum control of pyrethroid-resistant soybean aphids, beetles, mites and other insects, thanks to the recent registration of Ridgeback insecticide with Isoclast® active by Corteva Agriscience.

“Ridgeback insecticide combines the novel active ingredient, Isoclast active, with the trusted power of bifenthrin for broad-spectrum soybean pest control when quick knockdown matters most,” said Nathan Alonso, U.S. Product Manager, Insecticides, Corteva Agriscience. “This makes Ridgeback insecticide a valuable long-term resistance management tool, helping soybean growers maximize productivity and profitability.”

With two modes of action, growers who use Ridgeback insecticide can target key soybean pests with two modes of entry — contact and ingestion. And with translaminar movement, soybean growers achieve effective control of even the pests they can’t see, on the underside of leaves.

Key benefits of Ridgeback insecticide include:

-        Two active ingredients that deliver a new way to manage soybean pests in an easy-to-use premix.

-        Effectively targeting those pests that competing products might miss, such as pyrethroid-resistant soybean aphids.

-        Being tank-mix-compatible with a wide variety of other crop protection products.

-        Best-in-class insect control that can improve plant productivity and yield potential.

Ridgeback insecticide is the newest solution in a robust crop protection portfolio that is aimed at providing growers with products that fit the way they farm. To learn more about Ridgeback insecticide, visit Corteva.us or contact your local Corteva territory manager.
