Gowan Launches New Magus Miticide

Product features fast knockdown and good residual activity.

Gowan Company, LLC has announced the federal Section 3 registration of Magus miticide for broad-spectrum mite control in greenhouses, field-grown ornamentals and established ornamental plantings.

Powered by the novel active ingredient fenazaquin, Magus offers excellent contact and residual control of most mites commonly found in ornamentals. 

"Although fenazaquin is a brand new compound here in the U.S., it’s been used successfully on a wide range of agricultural and horticultural crops in more than 50 countries worldwide,” noted Gowan Product Manager Monica Dominguez.  “Magus delivers fast knock-down of spider mites, rust mites, broad mites and all economically important  mite pests found in ornamentals, along with excellent residual control.  Plus, it comes in a user-friendly suspension concentrate (SC) formulation with a relatively short 12-hour restricted entry interval (REI).”

According to Dominguez, Magus is also the ideal choice for managing mite resistance.  The active ingredient, Fenazaquin, belongs to a new class of chemistry not previously available in the U.S. That makes it the perfect foundation for an effective resistance management program,” she said.
