Rycar Insecticide is specific for whitefly and aphid control.

| July 14, 2014

Announcing the launch of Rycar, the newest insecticide technology from SePRO.

Rycar is a new insecticide from SePRO. The Insecticide Resistance Action Committee (IRAC) has yet to determine a new chemical group for Rycar and has classified it as UN (unknown). Rycar controls whiteflies (both B- and Q-biotypes), aphids, mealybugs, leafhoppers and chili thrips. Rycar is a new tool for growers to battle these insect pests while balancing the need to utilize alternative, softer chemistries. In addition to being a softer chemistry with low use rates, Rycar is also effective on pests resistant to traditional pesticide classes such as neonicotinoids, pyrethroids and organophosphates. Rycar has also been shown to be very gentle on a wide array of beneficial insects. 

Target pests exposed to Rycar stop feeding immediately. As a result, Rycar is proven to significantly reduce vector-viral transmission. Rycar has complete translaminar movement through the leaf, providing improved control of pests that feed and dwell on the under sides of leaves. Once movement into the leaf occurs, Rycar maintains consistent efficacy for up to 21 days.

Key features and benefits of Rycar:
• New chemistry with a unique MOA
• Great alternative to neonicotinoids
• Superior whitefly (B- and Q-biotypes) and aphid control
• Immediate stop-feed
• Significantly reduces virus transmission
• Gentle on beneficials

Rycar is packaged in a 12x8 fl. oz. bottle case, with an agency price of $140 per 8 fl. oz. bottle ($1,680/case). Due to the initial quantity available, SePRO will direct ship individual bottles to the end-user customer with freight pre-paid. Upon availability of sufficient quantities to adequately fill the supply channel (anticipated Oct 2014), Rycar will then revert to a traditional, stocked agency product.
