US (NY): Venerate XC Bioinsecticide now available in New York

Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. has announced the availability of Venerate XC bioinsecticide in New York. Venerate XC is a liquid microbial-based, contact and ingestion insecticide that degrades insect exoskeletons and interferes with molting of chewing insects, nymphs and adult sucking insects, as well as with flies and mites.

Lisa Malabad, MBI’s Insecticide and Nematicide Product Manager, said: “We are pleased that MBI is now able to provide New York growers with a second bioinsecticide for their pest management tool box. Venerate XC has been available in other states since 2015 and has consistently demonstrated cost-effective control of a variety of chewing and sucking insects and mites. Key fruit pests in New York targeted by Venerate XC include San Jose scale, rosy apple aphid, pear psylla and grape berry moth on apple, pear and grape crops. Today, New York growers now have access to a new insecticide with novel modes of action.”

Venerate XC, a user-friendly liquid formulation, is approved for use on a wide variety of New York’s vegetable, vine and tree fruit crops in conventional integrated pest management (IPM) and organic systems. Venerate has a minimal four hour re-entry interval (REI) as well as the advantage of a zero-day pre-harvest interval (PHI) and an exemption from MRL (maximum residue level) tolerances—a measure of pesticide residue limits that must be met for most food crop exports. There is no limit to the number of applications allowed per season, unlike many chemical products that have high risk for pest resistance development or trigger pesticide residue concerns. The product is also non-toxic to fish, birds, and most beneficial insects including honeybees.

With a unique mode of action, Venerate XC is an effective addition to a conventional IPM program for managing pest resistance. When used along with MBI’s other bioinsecticide, Grandevo, a broad-spectrum insecticide, New York farmers now have two bioinsecticides to manage key pests and reduce chemical residues, while reducing the risk of insecticide resistance.

All MBI products should be used in accordance with label directions.
