New Lumivia™ CPL insecticide now available for 2020 growing season

Calgary, AB – Corteva Agriscience is pleased to announce the commercial launch of Lumivia™ CPL insecticide seed treatment, which has a new mode of action for early-season protection against wireworm, cutworm, armyworm and pea leaf weevil in cereals, peas and lentils.
 
Having already received registration for 2020, this new addition to the Corteva Seed Applied Technology portfolio is now available for use for the approaching growing season.
 
“Lumivia CPL provides outstanding early season pest control that existing products on the market currently don’t offer,” said Lorne Thoen, Product Manager at Corteva Agriscience. “We developed and tested this product to meet specific local challenges and are excited that farmers in Western Canada will now be able to better safeguard their cereals, peas and lentils to ensure the best stand establishment and a healthy start to their crop.”
 
Designed for easy application for on-farm or retail treating, Lumivia CPL delivers a new mode of action with fast-acting protection. Along with a favourable environmental profile, it is proven to reduce the build-up of insect populations, maximize early season seedling stand establishment and increase yield potential.
 
Farmers in Western Canada are encouraged to book with their retailer or seed treater today to take advantage of 30 per cent in savings when booking Lumivia CPL in combination with their Corteva crop protection products by March 15, 2020.
