Insecticide Mixtures and Resistance Management  – Updated Guidance

Tags: , , , ,

The combined application of two insecticides with different modes of action (MoA) is an increasingly common approach to insect pest management. Insecticide mixtures (tank-mix or pre-formulated mixture) are applied to crops for pest management for many different reasons.
