Pymetrozine is a novel insecticide for the control of aphids and other sucking pests in cotton and represents a new class of control agents.  The compound interferes in the feeding behaviour of insects and controls insects resistant to standard chemistry.  Because of its unique mode of action, pymetrozine does not harm beneficial insects and is very useful in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs.  The compound exhibits low acute toxicity to mammals and has favourable environmental properties.  Use rates are 100-300 g a.i./ha.  Full development is underway around the world.
