Altacor label expanded to include borers

PMRA has approved the expansion of the Altacor label to include peach tree borer and lesser peach tree borer in all stone fruit.

Altacor (chlorantraniliprole), a Group 28 insecticide, can now be used to control peach tree borer and lesser peach tree borer at a rate of 215-285 g/ha in a maximum of 2000 L/ha water. It should be applied to the trunk (to 1.5 m) and lower branches using a coarse spray.

Like other borer sprays, thorough coverage is critical. Pheromone traps should be used to monitor adult activity and sprays begin 1 week after peak flight. A foliar application of any of these products designed for fruit pests will NOT give adequate coverage to provide protection from borers. A second application may be necessary if borer flight is extended.
