Oberon

Smart performance - new chemistry with translaminar activity and excellent efficacy

Oberon is a translaminar insecticide with excellent efficacy, providing residual control against a range of sucking insect pests including mites, whiteflies and psyllids.

Oberon provides a highly effective option for psyllid control in potato and outdoor tomato crops.

Benefits

  • Oberon provides proven control of potato psyllid, being highly effective against psyllid nymphs, while also reducing fecundity and viability of the eggs of adult females.
  • Oberon provides a new mode of action classified as a Lipid Biosynthesis Inhibitor (LBI), that controls pests via ingestion and contact and is an ideal rotational partner.
  • Oberon presents minimal risk to many beneficial insect species.
