Terramera Launches New Biological Pesticide SOCORO™ for Soybean, Corn, and Row Crops

April 17, 2023 - Today Terramera is excited to launch its latest product, a new biological pesticide that provides insect, mite, and disease management in a single application for both organic and conventional growers in the United States.  

A powerful new tool for row crop growers, SOCORO is labeled for use as a standalone, a tank mix partner or in a program rotation. SOCORO can be applied in-furrow or foliar targeting problematic pests in key commodity crops including grains, legumes, and oil seed.  

SOCORO is safe choice for growers with a re-entry interval of 4 hours and a zero-day preharvest interval. EPA-approved and OMRI-listed, SOCORO’s unique cold pressed neem-based formulation is composed of over 150 bio-actives designed to fight both insects and disease through multiple modes of action. SOCORO has been rated as having no known resistance to disease by the Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC).  

"We are thrilled to launch SOCORO, a new biologic solution for row crop growers that offers broad-spectrum control in a single application, " said Matthew Dahabieh, SVP and Head of Green Chemistry Solutions. “SOCORO is the next step in our journey to realizing the impact of biologics in agriculture.” 

SOCORO received EPA approval in March 2023, is made in the USA, and commercially available for the 2023 growing season. For product information, updates on state registrations, and where to buy SOCORO visit
