The Spear-Lep bioinsecticide from the Vestaron Corporation recently received EPA approval for adding hemp to the label.

Spear-Lep is designed to safely and sustainably control caterpillars, loopers, worms and other lepidopteran larvae. These pests are difficult to control for all growers, and the expanding hemp industry is addressing this issue head on as armyworms, corn earworms and others increase in pest status.

With an excellent safety profile for pollinators and other beneficials, Spear-Lep has a four-hour restricted-entry interval and a 0-day pre-harvest interval. Spear-Lep is a new tool for the protection of high-value field crops, including hemp, and a safe and versatile rotation partner for IPM and insecticide resistance management programs.
