Europe: XenTari necessary for keeping up diversity in the glass crops

In recent years several new agents were introduced to combat caterpillars, while being harmless to beneficial insects. However, it is very important to combine these with other means to prevent caterpillars from becoming resistant. 

XenTari fits perfectly into a rotation plan with other crop protection agents because it yields no additional residue in the final product and is completely safe for beneficial insects. With autumn on our doorstep the pressure of pests may increase and more chemicals being deployed to combat various diseases, XenTari may be an advantage. There is no residue and the number of active substances in the finished product can continue. 

XenTari in short:

  • On the basis of Bacillus thuringiensis
  • Contains the very active aizawai strain
  • Of natural origin
  • No contribution to number of active substances
  • Broad-spectrum (many species of caterpillar, including Duponchelia fovealis)
  • Highly versatile (covered and uncovered crops of ornamental and vegetable crops)
  • Very safe for the crop
  • Fits perfectly in integrated and biological control, as well as rotating schedules
