Ask an Agrologist


Vydate insecticide effectively controls significant insect pests in potatoes, non-bearing apple trees and raspberries. Foliar applications of Vydate translocate downward to protect the root system. When applied to the roots, Vydate will rapidly move throughout the plant canopy and roots. 

Quick action

When applied at label rates, Vydate rapidly stops feeding, movement, reproduction and hatching.

Action on multiple life stages

Vydate is effective against adults, nymphs and larvae of many pest species. Vydate is active as an ovicide against nematodes.

Beneficial insects

When applied to the soil, Vydate has no effect on foliar beneficial insects. As a foliar application, Vydate can be toxic to some beneficial insects. However, due to its moderate foliar residual activity, beneficial insects repopulate treated areas quickly.

Apple, Nonbearing (Malus domestica)


Potato (Solanum tuberosum ssp. Tuberosum)
