Active ingredient The FORTENZA® product family contains cyantraniliprole* a Group 28 insecticide, belonging to the diamide class of insecticides
Mode of action FORTENZA® (Cyantraniliprole) belongs to the chemical class diamides. It is a promising insecticide due to its unique mode of action in activating muscle ryanodine receptors, causing contraction and paralysis of some pests. A ryanodine receptor agonist, it is used as insecticide for the control of particulary lepidopteran pests and soil pests when applied as a seed treatment. Insects are controlled mainly by ingestion but some contact activity can also be observed. FORTENZA® provides excellent crop protection resulting from a rapid feeding inhibition and long lasting residual effect.
