Biological nematicide & fertilizer in one product: OceanGrown Inc launches Nemanator+
Tom Lonergan explained to Hortidaily: "Plant parasitic nematodes are a huge problem in global agriculture. Estimated global crop losses due to nematodes is in the region of $80 billion. Companies like OceanGrown are playing a big role in the fight because they have introduced an effective non-toxic solution.” This new product is the culmination of 5 years spent researching and developing a way to fight plant parasitic nematodes.
Nemanator+ has an innovative three-way effect. First, it significantly reduces the number of plant parasitic nematodes in the soil. Secondly, it restores the damaged root systems; and last but not least: with the help of special bacteria strains it creates nematode suppressive soil conditions for long-term effect.
OceanGrown founder, John Hartman explained, the product has several advantages. “First of all, we have to emphasize that the fight against nematodes has become very challenging for growers because of recent environmental measures. Growers have to now find alternatives to methyl bromide and other traditional nematicide treatments. Thus, our natural bio-control solution answers the growing demand. Nemanator+ is environmentally friendly because it uses specifically cultured bacteria strains rather then toxic chemicals.”- he said. “Also, our product is light on the budget compared to conventional solutions." Nemanator+ can reduced treatment costs by 75%.”
According to the product specifications, growers should apply 4 gallons/acre of Nemanator+ and will see results in as little as a few days, guaranteed. Growers concerned about nematode damage can now rest at ease with this non-toxic solution that has been proven to work.
