Transform WG Isoclast Active Insecticide – The experts have spoken
Transform is perfect for use in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs. Transform does not flare silverleaf whitefly or mites and its softness to beneficials (predators and parasitoids) makes it a great option for use early in the season and in systems which rely on beneficial insects to help control pests. Transform has a unique mode of action (Group 4C) with no known resistance issues and no cross-resistance with existing insecticides. It has a favourable ecotoxicology profile and is not persistent in the environment. Whilst having minimal impact on beneficial insects, Transform is hard on sucking pests, it is fast-acting, with rate-dependent residual control and offers excellent contact, systemic and translaminar activity. Transform can be applied by ground-rig or by air in cotton.
“Transform™ has done a remarkable job. We’ve got very good control of mirids, and even now – 2 weeks later – we still have very low numbers, well below threshold. The most exciting thing is that we’ve got just a fantastic population of beneficials there which is helping keep all the other pests under control and well below threshold.” Scott Armstrong, ‘Cooinda’, St George QLD.
“Not only is it an ideal rotation option, but it is easy to use, extremely effective on aphids and mirids and it is nice and soft on the beneficials. The other great thing is that it does not cause mite flaring which is important.” Mark Zanatta, Terra Ag Services, Griffith NS.
“Silverleaf whitefly reached pest status in some fields in 2013/14 due to the extreme heat. We applied Transform to control mirids in January and found it gave excellent suppression of silverleaf whiteflies so that no specific whitefly spray was
necessary.” John Barber, Cotton Consultant, St George QLD.
“The suppression effects are significant enough to make me hope to get through the season without spraying against whitefly on fields where I’ve applied Transform. I liked the quick knockdown of mirids and the good residual effect against them.” Stuart Doyle, Agronomist, Moree NSW.
