 •  Valent Professional Products

Distance Insect Growth Regulator now is registered for use on greenhouse-grown fruiting vegetables, including eggplant, groundcherry, pepino, pepper, tomatillo and tomato. Distance offers greenhouse growers whitefly, fungus gnat and shore fly control through its translaminar activity. When Distance is applied, it translocates to the underside of the leaves, stopping insects from feeding on the plant and eventually breaking the life cycle of these pests that plague greenhouses.

Additionally, Distance is a key resistance management tool that growers can use to rotate with other chemistries and incorporate into an integrated pest management program. www.valentpro.com
