Conserve - New Crops
The number one Western Flower Thrip insecticide Conserve has received approval from the Pesticide Safety Directorate for use on tomatoes, aubergines and peppers. The new crops join ornamentals and cucumbers on the product label.
The rate of use for the edible crops is 80 ml per 100 litres with a three day harvest interval.
Conserve contains spinosad which is highly efective against thrips and caterpillar pests but can be integrated with most biological controls.
