Efficacy of Spirotetramat in the Control of Pests will Drive the Market at 4.4% CAGR until 2020

Spirotetramat is a novel active ingredient from the chemical class of tetramic acids. It is an important innovation by Bayer CropScience in the field of foliar insecticides. When applied to foliage, spirotetramat penetrates the plant leaves or the leaf cuticle and gets transferred to other parts of the plant, such as to its growing shoots and down to the roots. In this way, spirotetramat market offers broad-spectrum control of many insects and pests such as aphids, thrips, mealy bugs, psyllids, and whiteflies on the plants.
