Why Use Heligen®
The new, safe and effective option
for controlling corn earworm
Heligen® is a valuable addition to your IPM program
Heligen® is a nucleopolyhedrovirus (NPV)-based biological insecticide designed to selectively control corn earworm (Helicoverpa zea). Heligen® offers significant advantages over synthetic chemicals:
Economical application at first appearance of Corn Earworm
This reduces yield-limiting damage and helps manage populations throughout the season versus using a reactive, rescue approach.
Complete safety to the environment and applicators
Heligen® is an OMRl-certified organic insecticide. It is highly selective, thus allowing valuable beneficial arthropods to build up crop and work to suppress secondary insect infestations, such as sugar cane aphids.
Unique Mode of Action (IRAC Group 31)
This makes Heligen® the perfect tank-mix or standalone application to control populations resistant to chemical insecticides. There are no known cases of resistance to NPV-based insecticides anywhere in the world.
