Fortenza Advanced seed treatment provides leading control of cutworms.

Cutworms can devastate a canola crop. The pest will cut seedlings off at the soil surface, or just below. Cutworms tend to be nocturnal, so until the introduction of Fortenza Advanced, the most effective management solution was to spray at night when the highest incidence of feeding occurs. By managing cutworms early with Fortenza Advanced, a grower can minimize the need to spray and improve efficiency during a very busy time of the year.

Fortenza Advanced is a seed-applied insecticide, and another tool that can be used in conjunction with foliar products as part of a grower’s cutworm management strategy.

Cutworm Pressure in Waldheim, SK 2015: The red icons on the image above represent canola that was treated with Fortenza and a base fungicide treatment. All others did not receive a Fortenza treatment. The trial was intended to evaluate activity on flea beetles. It was determined that the damage evidenced was due to cutworms.
