The Avid 0.15 EC miticide/insecticide 24(c) Special Local Needs registration will be cancelled, according to a notification received by Syngenta from the Environmental Protection Agency. 

The registration specifically affects golf courses in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia using the miticide/insecticide for nematode control.

Following the registration's cancellation, the use of the product will be limited to the remainder already purchased by the golf courses and must be used by June 30, 2017.

“Syngenta remains committed to researching new nematode management solutions for golf course superintendents,” Gregg Wisniewski, insecticide brand manager at Syngenta, said. “We look forward to bringing new innovations for nematode control to the market in early 2017.”

Golf course superintendents are asked to contact their local Syngenta territory manager with any questions.
