OHP Adds Greenhouse Vegetables to Shuttle O Label

6/12/2013

OHP, Inc. has added another use pattern to one of its many miticides. Production ornamental growers may now use Shuttle O Miticide on fruiting vegetables grown in greenhouses for control of a wide variety of mites.

OHP has expanded the label to include greenhouse vegetables in an effort to provide more tools for the production ornamental grower. The new labeling allows for use on greenhouse-grown fruiting vegetables, including eggplant, ground-cherry, pepino, pepper, tomatillo and tomato.

"We are excited about the label expansion to include greenhouse vegetables," notes OHP Vice President and General Manager Terry Higgins. "With more ornamental operations growing vegetables or vegetable transplants, they now have another tool to fight mites."

Shuttle O offers rapid knockdown of mites, reduced-risk classification, activity on all life stages, long residual control and a unique mode of action. It is soft on beneficial insects.

"With these features, Shuttle O is a product for today and tomorrow," notes Dan Stahl, OHP vice president of marketing and business development. "Its unique mode of action (MOA #20B) makes Shuttle O an ideal product for an IPM program."

Shuttle O is effective on a wide range of mite species, including two-spotted spider mites, spruce spider mites, citrus red mites, European red mites, and Pacific spider mites, and several others.

Shuttle O is not yet registered for the new use pattern in California and New York.

OHP is a leading marketer of pest control solutions for the production ornamental market. More information is available at www.ohp.com.
