Reliable Leaf and Fruit Worm Control

Caterpillars remain the most damaging threat to high value crops such as vegetables and fruits.

The active ingredient in MATCH®, lufenuron, is an insect growth regulator and owes its success to a number of features, namely its long lasting and broad lepidoptera control in combination with its favorable crop safety.

These features also make it an ideal partner for mixtures with other Syngenta insecticides.


Active Ingredient:



Emulsifiable Concentrate

Mode of Action:

MATCH® is an acylurea insect growth regulator which inhibits chitin synthesis and thereby prevents Lepidoptera larvae from molting from one stage to another. It acts by preventing the formation of the new cuticle. It also acts on freshly laid eggs by preventing the larvae from hatching properly.

Main Benefits of Using MATCH® :

MATCH® is a reliable partner with a valuable residual activity providing long lasting effect on lepidoptera.

MATCH® works on Pyrethroid and OP resistant pest management that is a good tool for resistance.

MATCH® is characterized by its mode of action, its spectrum of control and selectivity profile that make it suitable for use in integrated pest management (IPM).

MATCH® has low water solubility and strong soil adsorption which prevents leaching into the soil.
