New Biopesticide Active Ingredients - 2005

Related Information

This page provides a list of the new biopesticide active ingredients first approved in 2005 with links to their factsheets




Date Approved Active Ingredient
1/21/05 (Z)-6-heneicosen-11-one (129060) A lepidopteran pheromone, (Z)-6-Heneicosen-11-one will be incorporated into end-use products to control the Douglas Fir Tussock Moth (Orgyia psuedotsugata).
3/30/05 Chonrostereum purpureum HQ1 (081309) This new biopesticide has been registered for inhibiting sprouting and regrowth in cut stumps of certain deciduous tree species in rights-of-way, wood lots and conifer plantations, and is a biological alternative for Glyphosate, Triclopyr, Picloram + 2,4-D, and Hexazinone. It effectively prevents sprouting by colonizing and decaying the stump. These new biopesticide products provide users with a biological herbicide where conventional herbicides can not be used.
2/9/05 Harpin αβ protein (006506) Registration was granted for Harpin AB, a new type of harpin protein which enhances the growth and disease resistance of plants to a number of fungal pathogens.
3/30/05 Paecilomyces lilacinus strain 251 (028826) Paecilomyces lilacinus is a fungus found in soils throughout the world. BPPD registered Paecilomyces lilacinus strain 251as a nematicide product. Although many species of Paecilomyces release potent toxins, no such toxins have been detected in this strain. The end product, "MeloCon WG", is applied to the root zone of crops where it parasitizes many species of plant root nematodes. It does not harm beneficial nematodes or other tested organisms. This product is a potential alternative to the more toxic chemicals often used for controlling nematodes.
5/5/05 Alternaria destruens Strain 059 (028301) Alternaria destruens strain 059 is a fungal herbicide intended for control of Dodder (Cuscutta spp.). A naturally occurring microorganism, it is to be used as an herbicidal agent in agricultural fields, dry bogs, and ornamental nurseries. This product is of particular importance to the cranberry industry, which is in need of new dodder control mechanisms.
5/27/05 Bacillus thuringiensis var. aizawai strain PS811 Cry1F insecticidal crystal protein and the genetic material necessary for its production (plasmid insert PHP12537) in Event DAS-06275-8 corn (006491). The moCry1F protein, like the poCry1F protein, protects corn from certain lepidopteran insect larvae including European corn borer (ECB; Ostrinia nubilalis), southwestern corn borer (SWCB; Diatraea grandiosella), fall armyworm (FAW; Spodoptera frugiperda) and black cutworm (Agrostis ipsilon).
6/10/05 Bacillus thuringiensis aizawai strain NB200 (006494) A product containing a new strain of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) subspecies aizawai strain NB200, which is targeted against the larvae of lepidopteran (moth) agricultural pests. Larvae ingest spores of the bacterium, which ultimately cause the insect digestive system to fail. Bt pesticides have been used for decades in agriculture and are renowned for their specificity to the target pests and their lack of toxicity to non-target organisms and humans.
8/31/05 Bacillus thuringiensis Cry34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1 proteins and the genetic material necessary for their production (plasmid insert PHP 17662) in Event DAS-59122-7 corn(006490) The new corn plant-incorporated protectant, Event DAS-59122-7 Corn, is derived from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). It is the second PIP to offer protection against corn rootworm and is expected to result in a further reduction of chemical insecticide use by growers. The Bt proteins used in this product, are called Cry34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1 (Cry 34/35). The availability of multiple corn rootworm-protected corn products will increase grower choice and price competition, resulting in lower seed prices for consumers and higher adoption rates.
9/16/05 Saponins of Chenopodium quinoa Derived from the seeds of Chenopodium quinoa, which have long been used as a cereal like nutritional supplement, this new active ingredient is fungicide applied to potato, bean, pea, and wheat seeds as a pre-plant seed treatment. Roots and foliar treatments for tomato seedlings also was approved. All approved uses are non-food and the saponins in this product are known to rapidly degrade in the environment.
9/22/05 Muscodor albus QST 20799 A fungus, Muscodor albus QST 20799, is intended for use as a biofumigant alternative for methyl bromide. This strain is expected to control soil borne, fungal and bacterial diseases on all food commodities, ornamentals, seeds and propagules. Labeled for field, greenhouse and post harvest applications, M. albus QST 20799 produces volatile compounds that act as a fumigant. These volatiles occur naturally in foods and beverages and studies indicate low toxicity or pathogenicity potential.
9/29/05 Cuelure This new active ingredient 4-(p-acetoxyphenyl)-2- butanone (Cuelure) is a technical grade synthetic semiochemical insect sex attractant. It is for manufacturing use only into traps and lures to control certain Tephritidae flies (fruit flies) of the order Diptera . The product is not for direct application to pests.
10/19/05 Verticillium Isolate WCS 850 Verticillium Isolate WCS850 is a fungus that is injected into the trunks of elm trees in urban landscapes to manage Dutch Elm disease. This Isolate seems to act by stimulating the tree's natural defenses so that the tree becomes resistant to the organism that causes Dutch Elm disease.
12/9/05 Xanthomonas campestris pv vesicatoria Bacteriophages of Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria and Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato attack the plant pathogenic bacteria they are named after.
12/9/05 Pseudomonas syringae pv tomato Bacteriophages of Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria and Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato attack the plant pathogenic bacteria they are named after.
12/13/05 Bacillus thuringiensis Cry3Bb1 protein and the genetic material necessary for its production (Vector ZMIR39) in Event MON 88017 corn (OECD Unique Identifier: MON-88Ø17-3)
