Italy: Gowan Italia launches Dicarzol-thrips control

Among the parasites that attack fruit and vegetables, thrips have a major role, as they cause direct damages to the produce and spread viruses and bacteria.


Damages on aubergines, tomatoes and peppers.

A tougher control is therefore necessary to safeguard the production of crops, though there are not many pesticides available on the market.

Gowan Italia has recently launched Dicarzol┬«, a formetanate active substance.

After the great success of Dicarzol 50 SP, an excellent solution against thripidae, Gowan recently created the new DICARZOL 10 SP, a new formula with the "Xn" classification.

Dicarzol has been specifically studied to control thripidae - it is effective against mobile species (neanics and adults) as well as mites and other insects.



Dicarzol acts rapidly against insects by way of contact or ingestion and remains active even at high temperatures.

Two active substances (carbamate and formamidine) act on two different enzymes guaranteeing a double action, ideal to manage resistances.

Thrips can infest greenhouses and open fields both in Summer and Autumn.

Dicarzol can be used during this period on melons, watermelons, pumpkins (even with the treatment finishing only 3 days before harvesting), tomatoes and aubergines. Please contact the company for more details. 

In addition, Dicarzol 10 SP was recently introduced in Integrated Production Specifications for the control of thripidae on peaches and table grapes.

Its formulation in water-soluble bags means there are no unpleasant odours and is practical and safe.

Dicarzol can therefore be introduced in the best thrips control strategies, also in resistance management programmes, in order to safeguard vegetable yields and turnovers.
