Yuma, Arizona - Gowan Company, LLC is very pleased to announce that its Captiva™, a natural repellent bio-insecticide, has received federal registration from the EPA. Captiva™ controls thrips and spider mites and will be sold into a wide variety of specialty crop segments.
This registration represents a significant milestone as Captiva™ is the first product from Gowan’s distribution partnership pipeline with Ecoflora Agro to receive EPA registration. It joins Gowan’s growing biorational portfolio aimed to help growers in controlling crop-damaging pests, while also providing effective solutions to the increasing crop production challenges like residue management, labor and harvest flexibility, and resistance management.
“We are thrilled to receive registration and are eager to deliver US growers a product that we believe is one of the best in its class,” said Dallas Piscopo, Biorational Product Manager. 
Captiva™ Insect Repellant / Insecticide is currently being registered in individual states in preparation for the 2014/2015 growing season.
