To deliver proven, long-lasting control of turf’s most damaging insects, Syngenta is introducing PROVAUNT® WDG insecticide for the turf market. PROVAUNT® WDG is an enhanced formulation of PROVAUNT® insecticide that defends turf against common target pests turf caterpillars (armyworms, cutworms and sod webworms) mole crickets and weevils.  

Syngenta APAC Commercial Head of Marketing, Shane Lee, reported that PROVAUNT® WDG has an improved formulation to enhance performance. 

"The improved water dispersible granule goes into a solution more readily, making the mixing process more efficient for controlling key insect pests. In addition to enhanced mixing, we have also seen improved compatibility with other products,” advocated Shane 

Powered by the active ingredient indoxacarb, PROVAUNT® WDG can stop feeding within minutes, rapidly reducing feeding damage. Once introduced, mortality of targeted pests typically occurs within 24-48 hours. Additionally, PROVAUNT® WDG is rainfast within two hours of application.
