Insecticide Resistance Action Committee (IRAC) – Published New Mode of Action Classification – Now including Nematicides 2022
- The Insecticide Resistance Action Committee published – Mode of Action (MOA) Classification Brochure 7th Edition, Version 7.2
- IRAC Mode of Action (MOA) Classification Scheme, Version 10.3
- IRAC Poster Edition 8.1, June 2022. Based on the Mode of Action (MOA) Classification Version 10.3
THE IRAC MODE OF ACTION CLASSIFICATION
- Sub-group 3B: DDT is no longer used in agriculture and therefore this is only applicable for the control of insect vectors of human disease, such as mosquitoes, because of a lack of alternatives.
- Sub-group10A: Hexythiazox is grouped with Clofentezine because they exhibit cross-resistance even
though they are structurally distinct. Diflovidazin has been added to this group because it is a close
analogue of Clofentezine and is expected to have the same mode of action.
- Group 20: While there is strong evidence that Bifenazate acts on the Qo site of the Mitochondrial Complex
III and some Bifenazate resistance mutations confer cross-resistance to Acequinocyl, the sites of action
of Fluacrypyrim and Hydramethylnon have not been determined.
- Groups 26 and 27 are unassigned.
The definitive, global classification scheme on the target sites of acaricides and insecticides
The IRAC Mode of Action (MoA) classification provides growers, advisors, extension staff, consultants and crop protection professionals with a guide to the selection of acaricides or insecticides for use in an effective and sustainable acaricide or insecticide resistance management (IRM) strategy.
About IRAC: The global authority on Insecticide Resistance Management (IRM) – a strategy for Sustainable Agriculture and improved Public Health.
Nematicide Mode of Action Classification Scheme (Version 2.1)
Nematicide MoA Classification – This is the first edition to include the newly created Nematicide Mode of Action Classification Scheme. The development of this scheme enables visibility of the modes of action available to control plant-parasitic nematodes. Additionally, the numbering scheme allows clarity of product labeling, supporting the principles of rotation of mode-of-action for resistance management.
