Transform Insecticide Update

EPA has open a comment period on Transform®/Closer®/Sequoia® with Isoclast® insecticide (a.i. sulfoxalfor) from Dow AgroSciences until June 17th. This is an opportunity for the agriculture industry to comment about the importance of regaining registration of sulfoxalfor in several field crops as an insect management tool. This product has activity against piercing-sucking insect pests, such as aphids, leafhoppers and psyllids. It also is safer for beneficial insects and pollinators.
