Utility of Fulfill 50 WG for Aphid and Whitefly Management in Cotton

John P. Koenig, D. Scott Lawson, Stephen M. White and Dennis M. Dunbar


FulfillTM is a selective new insecticide currently under development by Novartis Crop Protection. It contains the active ingredient, pymetrozine, which belongs to a new chemical class known as the pyridine azomethines. Pymetrozine exhibits a unique mode of action and is not known to be cross-resistant to any other class of chemistry. It will have utility in insect pest management in cotton because of its activity against both aphids and whiteflies. Fulfill is compatible for use in cotton IPM and resistance management programs because of it's selectivity, low use rate, and unique mode of action. Novartis Crop Protection recently submitted a petition to EPA requesting registration of Fulfill as a reduced risk pesticide on several crop groupings, including fruiting vegetables, cucurbit vegetables, tobacco, and potatoes. Petitions for cotton, cole crops, and leafy vegetables are expected to be submitted in the third quarter of 1998.
