OHP's has announced that its Shuttle O miticide may now be used on fruiting vegetables grown in a greenhouse.

The new labeling allows for use on greenhouse-grown fruiting vegetables including eggplant, groundcherry, pepino, pepper, tomatillo, and tomato.

“We are excited about the label expansion to include greenhouse vegetables” notes OHP vice president and general manager Terry Higgins. “With more ornamental operations growing vegetables or vegetable transplants, they now have another tool to fight mites.”

Shuttle O offers rapid knockdown of mites, Reduced Risk classification, activity on all life stages, long residual control, a unique mode of action, and is soft on beneficial insects. It is effective on a wide range of mite species including two spotted spider mites, spruce spider mites, citrus red mites, European red mites, Pacific spider mites and several others.

Shuttle O is not yet registered for the new use pattern in California and New York.
