Related Information

This page provides a list of the new biopesticide active ingredients first approved in 2006 with links to their factsheet




Date Approved Active Ingredient
10/19/05 Verticillium Isolate WCS 850 (71927-1) 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 (67986-1) 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 (67986-1) 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) (524-551)  The new construct of this protein is deployed in corn for rootworm protection, and stacked with Cry1Ab in a second corn product for the addition of corn borer protection.
1/17/06 Sorbitol octanoate (70950-3) The new active ingredient is fatty acid ester, which controls target pests (mites and various soft-bodied insects) by its surfactant effect (i.e., rapid suffocation, or dewaxing of the pests’ cuticle, resulting in desiccation from body fluid loss).  The end-use products are for foliar application in agricultural/horticultural/greenhouse settings.
3/13/06 (Z,E)-9,12-Tetradecadien-l-yl acetate (56336-47)  A technical grade synthetic straight-chained lepidopteran pheromone intended to disrupt the mating cycle of the beet army worm moth, (Spodoptera exigus)
3/27/06 Colletotrichum gloeosporioides f.sp. aeschynomene (82681-1) A new micoherbicide used to control Northern Jointvetch.
3/29/06 Coyote Urine  (80917-1) This is a granular formulation inside a bag that can be hung from a tree or post to repel deer from ornamentals.
4/7/06 Methyl eugenol (81325-2) This active ingredient is used as an attractant in bait traps and bait and lure traps against Dipteran species.
4/10/06 Pantoea agglomerans strain C9-1 (71368-45) used to control fire blight (Erwinia amylovora) in apples and pears by competing with the plant pathogen.
4/20/06 E,Z-3, 13-Octadecadien-1-ol  (56336-48)  These pheromones are for controlling the Western Poplar Clearwing Moth.  Checkmate WPCM-F uses these two new active ingredients for direct application to poplars, white birch, willows, locust and other crops where this moth is a pest.
4/20/06 Z,Z-3, 13-Octadecadien-1-ol   (56336-48) See above.
5/11/06 Potassium Silicate  (82100-2)    Potassium Silicate is for use on vegetables, fruits, nuts, vine crops, field crops, ornamentals and turf for control of fungal diseases, and suppression of spider mites, whiteflies and other insects.
9/11/06 Pantoea agglomerans  strain E325  (71975-1)   This active ingredient is another strain of P. agglomerans also used for fire blight control in apples and pears.
9/21/06 Ammonium nonanoate (79766-1) Used for the suppression and control of weeds (grasses, vines, underbrush, and annual/perennial plants) growing in nurseries, greenhouses, landscapes, and interior locations.
