Description

Ensign 100 Insect Growth Regulator

Active Ingredient: Pyriproxyfen @ 100g/L

Similar or comparable to Admiral Insect Growth Regulator (Sumitomo) & Lascar Insect Growth Regulator (Adama)

Ensign 100 Insect Growth Regulator is for the control of Silverleaf whitefly (Bemisia tabaci Biotype B) in Cotton, Rockmelon and Capsicum, the control of Silverleaf whitefly (Bemisia tabaci Biotype B) and greenhouse whitefly in Tomatoes, and the control of various scales in Citrus, Mangoes and Olives.

Ensign 100 Insect Growth Regulator acts by suppressing embryogenesis with the insect egg and by inhibiting metamorphosis and adult emergence of target insects.  Surefire Ensign has no activity on adult insects, but the hatching of eggs laid by treated adults will be suppressed.  Since activity depends on the insect’s development, evidence of activity will be slower than typical contact insecticides.

The active ingredient Pyriproxyfen mimics a natural hormone in insects and disrupts their growth. It is a type of insect growth regulator that affects mostly young insects and eggs.  

What crops can Surefire Ensign 100 Insect Growth Regulator be used in;

  • Capsicum Or Pepper
  • Rockmelon Or Cantaloupe
  • Tomato
  • Citrus
  • Cotton
  • Mango
  • Olive

What insects does Surefire Ensign 100 Insect Growth Regulator control;

  • Silverleaf whitefly (Bemisia tabaci Biotype B)
  • Greenhouse whitefly (Trialeurodes vaporariorum)
  • Red scale (Aonidiella aurantii) 
  • Black scale (Saissetia oleae)
  • Mango scale (Aulacaspis tubercularis) 
  • Pink wax scale (Ceroplastes rubens)
  • Black Scale

Being an insect growth regulator, the best results will be obtained when the product is used when the whitefly population consists primarily of susceptible juvenile offspring. It artificially increases juvenile hormone levels in insects, inhibiting egg hatch & metamorphosis. As with all IGR’s, it can be slow-acting but have long-lasting effects.

Surefire Ensign IGR has a translaminar action through leaf surfaces, is non-toxic to bees and has mostly short withholding periods in crops.

Mango, olive & citrus tree scales are also on the label, with a spring application being preferred. Note that no more than 2 consecutive applications per season of a Group 7C insecticide are required to maintain an effective insecticide resistance management strategy

Directions Of Use

Crop: Cotton
Insect: Silverleaf whitefly (Bemisia tabaci Biotype B)
Rate: 500mL per Hectare.
Critical Comments: Ensure thorough coverage. Apply when industry recommended thresholds of Silverleaf whitefly (SLW) are exceeded. If a second spray is required, a minimum re-treatment interval of two weeks must be observed. Do not apply more than twice in any one season. Apply as per current Cotton Industry Insecticide Resistance Management Strategy.


Crop: Rockmelon, Tomato, Capsicum (field and greenhouse)
Insect: Silverleaf whitefly (Bemisia tabaci Biotype B) Greenhouse whitefly (Trialeurodes vaporariorum)
Rate: 500mL per Hectare.
Critical Comments: Ensure thorough coverage. Apply in 100 – 150 L water per hectare. Use high water volume 500 – 1000 L/ha for dense crops. If applying more than 1000 L/ha use a rate of 50 mL/100 L water. Apply at the first appearance of whitefly. If a second spray is required, a minimum re-treatment interval of two weeks must be observed. Do not apply more than twice in any one season. To avoid the resistance build-up, the product must be rotated with other approved products. Apply in accordance with the SLW Resistance Management Strategy.


Crop: Citrus
Insect: Red scale (Aonidiella aurantii) Black scale (Saissetia oleae)
Rate: 50L per 100L Water

Insect: Mango scale (Aulacaspis tubercularis) Pink wax scale (Ceroplastes rubens)
Rate: 50L per 100L Water


Crop: Olives
Insect: Black Scale
Rate: 50L per 100L Water


Critical Comments Citrus, Mango & Olive:
Ensure thorough coverage.

  • Red scale: Apply at the time of crawler release. There are usually multiple periods of crawler release from spring through to autumn. Ideally, Surefire Ensign should be applied to control the first generation but if the infestation persists and there is significant crawler release later in the season then Surefire Ensign can be applied again. Do not apply more than twice in any one season on tree crops.
  • Black scale: Apply at the time of crawler release which is usually December to January but also may occur in autumn. Do not apply more than twice in any one season.
  • Mango scale: Apply at the time of crawler release. There are usually multiple periods of crawler release from spring through to autumn. Ideally, Surefire Ensign should be applied to control the first generation but if the infestation persists and there is significant crawler release later in the season then Surefire Ensign can be applied again. Do not apply more than twice in any one season.
  • Pink wax scale: Apply at the time of crawler release in early spring to early summer. There are usually two periods of crawler released in Queensland, with crawlers of the second generation emerging in mid-summer to mid-autumn. Ideally, Surefire Ensign should be applied to control the first generation but if the infestation persists and there is significant second-generation crawler release then Surefire Ensign can be applied again. Do not apply more than twice in any one season.

  • Do not apply surefire ensign more than twice per growing season.
  • Surefire ensign should be alternated with other suitable products, the choice of which will depend on the need to maintain beneficial insects in the field or orchard.

Mixing:

  • Measure the required amount of Surefire Ensign, add to the spray tank partly filled with water and then add the remainder of the water.

Application:

Cotton:

  • Ensure thorough coverage. Apply in 100 – 150 L water/ha (ground rig boom spray) or 20 – 30 L water/ha (aerial).
  • The ground application must be the first option undertaken.
  • Aerial application may only be applied in cases where canopy closure prevents ground access.
  • Apply when industry recommended thresholds of Silverleaf whitefly (SLW) are exceeded.
  • DO NOT apply more than two applications per crop.
