Important update about Syngenta’s Avid miticide

Syngenta received notification from the Environmental Protection Agency that the Avid 0.15 EC miticide/insecticide 24(c) Special Local Needs (SLN) registration in turf will be canceled effective June 30.

The cancellation affects the use of Avid on golf course greens to control nematodes in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

Superintendents will have one year after the cancellation date to continue using existing product under the 24(c) SLN. The Avid + Heritage fungicide and Avid + Heritage Action fungicide Multipaks are also available for use under the 24(c) SLN until June 30, 2017.

This cancellation does not affect the availability of Avid for ornamental plants, which is still being produced and used under its current Section 3 federal registration.

“Syngenta remains committed to researching new nematode management solutions for golf course superintendents,” said Gregg Wisniewski, insecticide brand manager at Syngenta. “We look forward to bringing new innovations for nematode control to the market in early 2017.”
