Altacor® controls insect pests through a novel mode of action – the activation of insect ryanodine receptors (RyRs). These receptors play a critical role in muscle function.





Powered by Rynaxypyr®, Altacor® is an innovative insect control product that provides broad-spectrum, residual control of the pests that matter most in many fruit and nut crops.

Its active ingredient, Rynaxypyr®, is from a whole new group of chemistry (Group 28) with no cross-resistance to other chemistries. It controls hatching insects all the way through to adult stages of development and is easy on bees and beneficial insects.
