Flonicamid: A Novel, Highly Selective Aphicide for use on Cotton

D.W. Long, C.A. Staetz, and J.T. Bahr


Flonicamid is a highly selective, fast acting aphicide belonging to a new class of insecticides: the pyridinecarboxamides. Flonicamid was discovered by Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha (ISK) and was selected for development based on its insecticidal activity and superb environmental profile. ISK and FMC Corporation entered into a co-development and commercialization agreement for the Americas. Flonicamid has been tested under the ISK code number IKI-220 and the FMC code number F1785. The crop use (cotton, leafy vegetables, fruiting vegetables, pome fruit, stone fruit, potato, and cucurbits) registration packet was submitted to EPA in 2003. EPA classified flonicamid as an OP replacement and U.S. crop registrations are expected for 2005 season. It has already been approved for use on greenhouse ornamentals.
