Benefits

Use Delegate for rapid knockdown and long-lasting control of many pests in a wide range of crops.  

Unique mode of action

Wide angle of a corn field with sky in background

No other class of products affects the insect’s nervous system with the same mode of action as spinetoram, the active ingredient in Delegate. For this reason, Delegate is an excellent rotational product for use in an Integrated Pest Management system.

Easy-to-use formulation

Corn canopy close up

Delegate offers low use rates delivered through a convenient dry formulation.

Exceptional performance

Corn field with sky in background

Delegate quickly and effectively controls foliage-feeding pests across many horticulture crops, knocking down pests within minutes to hours of application. Delegate also offers quick knockdown and residual control of Western bean cutworm and European corn borer in field corn.
