BASF introduces Renestra insecticide

New insecticide provides robust dual modes of action for broad-spectrum control

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, December 2, 2020 – BASF is introducing Renestra™ insecticide for the 2021 growing season. This new tool provides soybean farmers with a complete solution for controlling a wide range of insect pests and soybean aphids that have developed resistance to traditional chemistries.

Consisting of both a pyrethroid and the unique Inscalis® insecticide active ingredients, Renestra insecticide provides knockdown and residual control of a broad-spectrum of soybean pests, including resistant and non-resistant aphids, as well as a variety of other feeding insects.

“Aphids continue to be a problem for many soybean growers, and Renestra insecticide will give them a unique new option to control these pests,” said Jennifer Archer, Product Manager, Soybean Insecticides, BASF Agricultural Solutions. “This new innovation provides growers with a complete solution for soybean aphids and other troublesome soybean pests.”

Renestra insecticide is a fast-acting soybean product that is easy to handle, provides a low use rate and is a good tank-mix partner. The combination of a quick knockdown and long-lasting residual control of a variety of pests makes Renestra insecticide a good choice for soybean farmers.

Farmers can contact their local BASF representative or authorized BASF retailer for for more information.
