Benefits of Cimegra

  • In the insect’s nervous system there are two types of signals transferred between cells — excitatory signals and inhibitory signals. Balance between these signals is crucial for normal insect behavior. Neurotransmitters, such as GABA, communicate these signals between cells.
  • In a normally functioning nervous system, GABA released by one cell activates GABA receptors of another cell, resulting in inhibition. Broflanilide insecticide prevents GABA from transmitting inhibitory signals, which causes overexcitation of the nervous system and leads to incapacitation of the insect. It does this by binding to a novel insecticide site on the GABA receptor that locks it closed.

How Much to Apply

In potatoes


Application method

Application rates

For wireworm control1

Apply the in-furrow spray to uniformly cover the seed pieces and surrounding soil. Do not apply to the soil surface of a closed furrow.

100 ml/ac (250 ml/ha)

For 90 cm (36") row spacing2

2.3 ml per 100 metres of row


In corn


Application method

Application rates

For wireworm and corn rootworm control1

Apply at planting as an in-furrow or T-band spray by directing spray pattern to uniformly cover seed and surrounding soil.

100 ml/ac (250 ml/ha)

For 76 cm (30") row spacing2

1.9 ml per 100 metres of row


1  Do not exceed 250 ml/ha (25 g a.i./ha).
2  For different row spacing, see label for calculation.


Water volume
Dilute Cimegra insecticide product in a minimum of 50 L of water per hectare (5 gallons / acre). Use sufficient water to ensure thorough coverage of the seed, or seed piece and surrounding seed furrow.


Mixing order

  1. Ensure the spray tank is clean before use.
  2. Fill the spray tank 1/2 full of water and start agitation.
  3. Shake/agitate container well before use.
  4. Add the required amount of Cimegra insecticide to the mix tank.
  5. Continue agitation while filling the remainder of the spray tank.
  6. After use, clean the spray tank according to label precautions.

Follow Crops

Immediate plant-back is permitted for all labelled crops. A plant-back interval of 30 days is required for all crops not on the label.

Resistance Management Recommendations

  • Insecticide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting and record keeping, and considers pest thresholds, as well as cultural, biological, and other chemical control practices
  • Before using an insecticide, correctly identify the pest and monitor population levels in the crop. Only treat if action thresholds (i.e., pest numbers or damage level) are met or if forecasting models expect them to be met
  • Where possible, rotate the use of insecticides with different insecticide groups that control the same pests
  • DO NOT exceed the total number of applications of insecticide per year
  • Use tank mixtures with insecticides from a different group that are effective on the target pest when such use is permitted
  • Monitor treated pest populations for resistance development
  • If you suspect resistance, contact BASF or your local extension specialist
