The California Department of Pesticide Regulation has recently granted SEICAN biopesticide registration approval for use in the state.
This approval brings to California growers an OMRI-listed miticide-insecticide that is highly effective against multiple pests with high economic impact on the wide variety of crops grown in the state.
“SEICAN is broad spectrum biopesticide based on cinnamaldehyde,” explained Jim Sturges, Summit Agro Western Regional Sales Manager. “SEICAN acts quickly to provide high efficacy at low doses and is ideally suited for conventional, sustainable, and organic farming programs.”
With dual modes of action SEICAN acts by contact on target pests with a repellant effect that prevents new infestations. This new biopesticide offers California growers an excellent alternative to mineral oils and chemical acaricides, Well-suited for resistance management programs, SEICAN also presents a 0-day pre-harvest interval.
