Transform My Cotton



“The back-to-back applications of Transform, for us, works better than anything we’ve found for controlling plant bugs.”

Les Goodson, Goodson Crop Consulting, Monette, Arkansas

The unique mode of action delivers more benefits.

Transform® WG insecticide features the active ingredient sulfoxaflor and is the only member of a new class of insecticides: Group 4C. This means Transform offers more benefits and options for cotton growers.

  • Effectively controls sap-feeding insects by contact and by feeding through translaminar activity, effectively reaching those out of the direct line of spray.
  • Delivers excellent residual activity.
  • Provides a needed rotation option for resistance management programs.
  • Exhibits no cross-resistance to insect pests resistant to neonicotinoids or any other class of chemistry.
  • Does not flare spider mites or aphids.
  • Has minimal impact on beneficial insects.
