Spear®-Lep is Vestaron’s revolutionary bioinsecticide for fruits, vegetables and other high-value field crops. Targeting lepidopteran pests such as loopers, worms and caterpillars, field trials with Spear®-Lep show performance that is equal to and often superior to conventional insecticides. With no known resistance or cross-resistance, Spear®-Lep works as a standalone product, or in rotation with conventional insecticides as an excellent resistance management tool for IPM. The active ingredient in Spear is GS-omega/kappa-Hxtx-Hv1a. T
The Spear family of products are the first peptide-based insecticides, and the first bioinsecticides that affect a specific neuromuscular target. Spear® delivers an entirely new mode of action for crop protection (IRAC group 32), which means no cross resistance to any other active ingredient, and is a novel tool for insecticide resistance management. Because of its biological origins, Spear® is lethal to leps, insect and mite pests, but non-toxic to bees, fish and mammals.
Leprotec® is the ideal partner for use with Vestaron’s Spear®-Lep bioinsecticide. Low doses of Btk disrupts the insect mid-gut opening a passage for the Spear peptide to reach target receptors in the nervous system.
At a treatment rate of 1 pint / acre (of each product), the price is $19.38 / acre and one case treats 16 acres.
