    Bayer Vayego U.S. MRLs to Match Canada Limit


    The Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) in the United States for vayego insecticide have been harmonized with those in Canada, Bayer says in a news release on April 26. This will allow for seamless export of crops treated with vayego.

    “With excellent residual control of key insect pests using low use rates, we are excited about providing farmers with vayego,” Kate Hyatt, crop and campaign manager for fruits and vegetables at Bayer CropScience Inc., says in the news release. “With this news, farmers have freedom to operate and include vayego as part of an integrated pest management program.”

    This approval means potato, fruit and vegetable growers are now equipped with a knockdown tool for key insect pests, the release notes. Vayego is a second-generation Group 28 diamide, which offers excellent control of lepidopteran pests in potatoes, tree fruit and vegetables, with low risk to beneficial insects when used according to the product label.
