Velum / Verango : a new ground-breaking nematicide from Bayer
DE)(NYSE:SYT) announced today the launch of CLARIVA, a proprietary seed treatment nematicide based on the Pasteuria technology acquired in 2012.
Host-plant resistance to root-knot nematode is, therefore, the most environmentally safe means to alleviate sugarbeet production problems and nematicide hazards.
It has been seen that when nematicides like abamectin, nemaless and sincocin-A Gare applied with EPNs show more inhibition of life cycle of the RKNs than the alone nematicide chemicals (Turner and Schaeffer, 1989; El-Nagdi and Youssef, 2004).
Enhancement of the efficacy of a carbamate nematicide against the potato cyst nematode, Globodera pallida, through mycorrhization in commercial potato fields.
3]s product portfolio includes biological fungicides such as Serenade , Sonata , and Contans , the insecticide Requiem , and the nematicide BioAct .
This cultivar allows growers to produce a tobacco crop while reducing cyst nematode populations in a manner comparable with a fumigant nematicide.
The cost of preplant fumigation can range from about $275 to $1,300 per acre, depending on which nematicide is used.
For example, its nematicide BioAct is available in 10 countries.
