TriStar control with tomatoes, peppers

April 20, 2010
Written by Engage Agro
Oct 2009 – Engage Agro has announced that TriStar 70 WSP is now registered for use in greenhouse tomato and pepper production in Canada. TriStar has received a minor use label expansion for the control of aphids on greenhouse peppers with a spray application and for the control of whiteflies on tomatoes with a drip irrigation application.

TriStar is a neonicitinoid insecticide and has been used in Canadian greenhouse ornamental and nursery ornamental production for many years. It offers contact, systemic and translaminar activity on a number of sucking insect pests. The flexibility of the product allows it to be used effectively in a preventive control program or as a cleanup. TriStar also has a very low toxicity to bumble bees, which makes it an ideal choice for greenhouse vegetable production. 

Engage Agro would like to thank OMAFRA, AAFC-PMC and Nippon Soda for their contributions and support of this project.

For further information about TriStar 70 WSP, contact your local retailer or call Engage Agro at 866-613-3336, ext. 235. Product labels and technical bulletins can be downloaded at
