Application Information

Use Rates

73 mL/ac (180 mL/ha)

Water Volume

  • Ground application: Apply in 100 - 200 L of water per hectare (11-22 gallons/acre)
  • Aerial application: Apply in minimum spray volume of 20 L/ha (2 gallons/acre)

Application Method

Aerial, Ground

Application Information

  • For bean leaf beetles, repeat sprays at a minimum of 7 day intervals depending on the presence of significant populations as determined by local monitoring.
  • Applications should be made based on local bean leaf beetle and soybean aphid thresholds.

Scouting for soybean aphids

Soybean fields should be scouted and 20-30 random plants checked across the field for aphids (avoid field edges). Count all aphids on each leaf of the entire plant.

This app is available to aid in determining economic thresholds:

Action threshold (R1-R5): 250 aphids per plant and actively increasing on 80% of the plants.

Scouting for bean leaf beetles

graphic depiction of defoliation for estimation purposes

Scouting at V3-R4

  • In 10 areas of the field pick 5 plants.
  • On each plant, pick trifoliate leaves that are fully expanded from the centre of the plant canopy.
  • Discard the least and most damaged leaflets from each trifoliate collected.
  • Determine the percent defoliation that has occurred. 

Scouting at R5-R6 in IP and Seed Fields

  • If 10% of the pods on the plants have feeding injury and the beetles are still active in the field, a spray is warranted. However, remember to consider days-to harvest intervals.

Bean leaf beetle thresholds (based on soybean development stage):

  • Pre-bloom (i.e.vegetative stages): 30% defoliation
  • Bloom (R1) to pod-fill (R4): 15% defoliation
  • Pod-fill (R5) to maturity (R6, unless pod feeding is observed): 25% defoliation

Technical Information

Chemistry Group

Group 3 and Group 4 insecticides

Mode of Action


  • Controls insects primarily through ingestion
  • Penetrates through the leaf surface and moves in a locally systemic manner
  • Also controls insects that feed on the underside of leaves
  • Provides long residual control of sucking insects


  • Controls insects primarily through contact
  • Remains mostly on leaf surfaces

Resistance Management

Resistance-Management Recommendations

For resistance management, please note that Endigo contains Group 3 and Group 4 insecticides. Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Endigo and other Group 3 or 4 insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect population if this group of insecticides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but are specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.

To delay insecticide resistance:

Where possible, rotate the use of Endigo or other Group 3 or 4 insecticides with different groups that control the same pests in a field.

Use tank mixtures with insecticides from a different group when such use is permitted.

Insecticide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, record keeping, and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.

Monitor treated pest populations for resistance development.

Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or IPM recommendations for the specific site and pest problems in your area.

For further information or to report suspected resistance, contact Syngenta Canada Inc. company representatives at 1-87-SYNGENTA (1-877-964-3682).
