Valent Celebrates DiPel® Biological Insecticide 50th Anniversary
22 September 2021, US: Valent U.S.A. is proud to celebrate the 50th anniversary of DiPel® Biological Insecticide. Few crop protection products have stood the test of time like DiPel. Increasing pest resistance and regulations have impacted the products available to growers to combat Lepidopteran (worm) pests. Yet DiPel continues to be a leading solution that growers depend on.
First registered in the United States by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1971, DiPel continues to provide growers with proven, broad spectrum Lepidoptera larvae control on more than 200 crops.

Because there is no known resistance to DiPel, it is an excellent addition to resistance management programs to help ensure other currently used modes of action continue to work effectively.
DiPel won’t harm beneficial insects and there are no harvest residue or MRL concerns because DiPel is exempt from tolerances. And for organic growers, the DiPel DF formulation is OMRI listed and NOP compliant for organic production.
