The company plans to start
distributing the product immediately. Nippon Soda Co. Ltd. acquired the brand
and its active ingredient – tebufenozide – from Dow AgroSciences on March 31 of
this year.

Confirm controls a broad
spectrum of external Lepidopteran pests across a wide range of crops, including
apples, cranberries, pears, and greenhouse lettuce, peppers, tomatoes, and
ornamentals. Key pests controlled by Confirm include cabbage loopers, codling
moth, European corn borer, fireworm, green pug moth, obliquebanded leafroller,
sparganothis fruitworm, spotted tentiform leafminer, and winter moth.

“Confirm is an excellent
product for control of external Lepidopteran pests early in the growing
season,” notes Gowan product manager Eric McEwen. “While very effective against
target pests, it’s soft on most beneficial species and has a low impact on
aquatic organisms.”

McEwen added that Confirm
fits well into integrated pest management (IPM) programs as well as resistance
management strategies.
