|Active ingredient||The FORTENZA® product family contains cyantraniliprole* a Group 28 insecticide, belonging to the diamide class of insecticides|
|Mode of action||Applied as a seed treatment, FORTENZA® Duo is quickly taken up by the roots and moves upward in the plant through the xylem system, controlling a broad range of above ground insects. The product is also distributed into the soil around the root zone forming a bulb of protection against below ground insects. It is a soil systemic product. Insects are controlled mainly by ingestion but some contact activity can also be observed. FORTENZA® Duo provides excellent crop protection resulting from a rapid feeding inhibition and long lasting residual effect|
