Wireworms control in potatoes with beneficial nematodes

Descargar trial results wireworm control

Wireworms (Agriotes spp) are a major problem for many potato growers. Most of the effective conventional soil insecticides for wireworms have been banned since many years. The still available conventional pesticides work poorly in the soil.

Beneficial nematodes occur naturally in soils and have the benefit of being able to move in the soil profile to actively hunt for pests. Trials and field experience confirm positive results in controlling wireworms by using beneficial nematodes as a substitution of conventional pesticides or as a complement.
