Technical Profile: VYDATE L

Insect Resistance Management (IRM)

Group 1A Insecticide

Insecticide Resistance Warning

For insecticide resistance management DuPont™ Vydate® L insecticide/nematicide is a Group 1A insecticide.

Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Vydate® L and other Group 1A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Vydate® L or other Group 1A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Vydate® L on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since the occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, DuPont accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of this product to control resistant insects.

DuPont™ Vydate® L may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, DuPont representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

IPM is a flexible approach which makes use of all available technologies to manage pest problems effectively and safely. IPM strategies consist of three basic components:

  • Prevention of pest build-up
  • Monitoring of pest levels, and natural control mechanisms, such as beneficial insects
  • Intervention where control measures are needed
