Our SHENZI products deepen our ever-growing holistic portfolio of solutions as we support growers in sustainably producing healthy and nutritious crops to feed the world.”

SHENZI™ 700 WG insecticide controls pests including codling moth, leafminers and navel orangeworm in crops such as pome fruits, tree nuts, citrus, stone fruits, cranberries and grapes. SHENZI™ 400 SC Insecticide offers long-lasting control of pests including armyworm, corn earworm and Colorado potato beetle in crops including potatoes, soybeans, cotton, fruiting vegetables, corn, strawberries and peanuts.
