February 27, 2009
Kontos is a new systemic insecticide from OHP that derives from the tetramic acid class of chemistry. Kontos can be applied as a foliar spray or drench, and it controls a number of major sucking insect and mite pests, including Adelgids, aphids, leafhoppers, mealybugs, Psyllids, spider mites, spittlebugs and whiteflies.
Kontos is both xylem and phloem active, meaning the systemic activity moves upward and downward in the treated plants. As of Feb. 4, Kontos is registered for use in more than 30 states. It's packaged in 250-milliliter containers and ships six per case.
