The active ingredient cyhalothrin-lambda was already labelled on a wide range of crops including grains, oilseeds, vegetables and fruits.  Note that Warrior will eventually replace Matador in the marketplace.

Management of true armyworm has become a more serious problem affecting potatoes in Ontario and other nearby provinces such as Quebec. Tarnished plant bug is an annual, serious pest of leaf lettuce wherever lettuce crops are grown. Matador and Warrior were only labelled previously on head lettuce.
