Group 6 & 28 insecticides
Mode of Action
Abamectin controls labelled insects on contact.
Cyantraniliprole protects from the labelled pests by deterring feeding or encouraging anti-feeding activity.
For resistance management, please note that Minecto Pro contains a Group 6 insecticide/miticide (abamectin, belonging to the avermectin class of chemistry) and a Group 28 insecticide (cyantraniliprole, belonging to the diamide class of chemistry). Any insect/mite population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Minecto Pro and other Group 6 or 28 insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect/mite population if this group of insecticides is used repeatedly in the same field. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but are specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Because resistance development cannot be predicted, the use of this product should conform to sound resistance management strategies established for the crop and use area.
To delay insecticide resistance:
Where possible, rotate the use of Minecto Pro or other Group 6 or 28 insecticides/miticides with different groups that control the same pests in a field.
Use tank mixtures with insecticides/miticides from a different group when such use is permitted.
Insecticide/miticide 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. If resistance is suspected, do not reapply Minecto Pro or other Group 6 or Group 28 insecticides/miticides.
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.
