New BASF Insecticide Performs on Vegetables

Carrie Muehling

BASF offers a wide portfolio of fungicides for use in fruits and vegetables, but it was a new insecticide getting the attention of growers at the 2020 Southeast Regional Fruit and Vegetable Conference in Savannah, Ga.

Sefina is the new product offering white fly and aphid control, according to Joe Mitchell, BASF technical service representative for Florida and South Texas.

“It’s actually a novel, new product that controls white fly. It’s in its own mode of action, Group 9D. There are no other products in that area. So it’s a different mode of action. Good for IPM concerns and resistance management. And it’s extremely active on white flies and aphids,” said Mitchell.
