The fact sheet summarizes the information in the RED for hexadecadienol acetates, including the active ingredients (Z,E)-7,11-Hexadecadien-1-yl acetate and (Z,Z)-7,11-Hexadecadien-1-yl acetate, which are marketed under the trade name Gossyplure. Hexadecadienol acetates are sex-attractant pheromones of the pink bollworm, Pectinophora gossypiella, Saunders, registered only for use on growing cotton to disrupt the male-female mating behavior. They are used in small quantities--less than 100 pounds of the active ingredients are applied each year, and only about 1% of the California cotton crop is treated with these biochemical pesticides.
