Abamectin Crop Safety Summary – 2023

Research Summary Abstract

Abamectin has been registered since 1987 for environmental horticulture crops, initially for leafminers and spider mites on annuals and herbaceous perennials. Then in 2000, woody ornamentals plus aphids, thrips, whiteflies and other mite groups were added to the Avid 1.5 EC label.
Since 1984, IR-4 has included Avid 0.15EC in 113 crop safety trials and 48 efficacy experiments, with it being viewed as a standard commercially available tool in the more recent research activities.
