Aug. 29, 2023 – Rycar™ has been granted registration for control of aphids and whiteflies in greenhouse cucumbers, eggplant, lettuce, peppers, tomatoes, and ornamental plants.

Rycar is a new product for Canadian greenhouse growers that will help them continue to manage aphids and whiteflies in greenhouse vegetable and ornamental crops.

The only Group 9B insecticide registered for use in greenhouse crops, Rycar is a rotation option that will control pests that may have developed tolerances to other chemistries. Rycar acts via contact and ingestion and stops target insects from feeding within two hours with control during the next 48 hours.
