Use Nutari as an alternative source of food for build-up and maintenance of generalist predatory mite populations Amblyseius swirskii, Amblyseius andersoni, Amblydromalus limonicus, Neoseiulus californicus, Neoseiulus cucumeris, Transeius montdorensis) in the beginning of the season and at low prey densities.
How it works
Mode of action
When density of the target pest is low and there is no alternative food available in the crop Nutari can be provided as alternative food source for predatory mites. This will ensure a standing army of predatory mites in the crop, keeping the target pest on a low level.
|Pack size||2,000,000 mites.|
|Presentation||0.9 litre cardboard cylinder.|
|Developmental stage||All stages.|
Directions for use
- Apply Nutari weekly
- Start directly together with or just after the first introduction of predatory mites
- Continue to apply during the season, even when pests are present
- Nutari can be applied by sprinkling on the leaves by hand or with an Air(o)bug
- Large heaps of carrier material may cause leaf damage, so make sure the material is distributed as a thin, even layer
The dosage of Nutari depends on climate, crop and pest density and should always be adjusted to the particular situation. Start introduction together with the first predatory mite release. Apply at least 1000 mites/m2 per release. Consult a Koppert advisor or a recognized distributor of Koppert products for advice on the best strategy for your situation.
Carpoglyphus lactis is tolerant to a wide range of conditions and generally survives in conditions suitable for predatory mites.
