VBC's investment in Research and Development program has led to a rich pipeline of products which include bioinsecticides and a nematicide
Velum and Verango are the first nematicides
acting via complex ll inhibition, thus selectively inhibiting the nematode s generation of cellular energy.
Conventional banana farms use protective plastic bags that have been impregnated with insecticides (typically chlorpyrifos), apply nematicides
and fungicides via cropduster or by injection into the soil, and use herbicides to kill competing plants.
It has been concluded from present research that certain plant extracts are a source of cheap and effective nematicides
of root knot nematodes and fungicide of Fusarium, also it doesn't has human and environment health implications.
There have been reports on the use of Tagetes species as a nematicide
Results will show if seed treatments perform comparative to in-furrow applications of insecticides, nematicides
, and fungicides.
Two of the three major banana-producing companies in Central America switched to other, more expensive nematicides
in 1977, but Standard Fruit continued using Nemagon.
Fungicides and nematicides
are important groups of pesticides for banana production in several countries, including Australia (e.
He hoped to apply the same technologies to discovering insecticides and nematicides
A RESEARCH project at Harper Adams University College aims to find out whether soil type can influence the effectiveness of nematicides
on potato cyst nematodes.
Thus, the term comprises insecticides, herbicides, rodenticides, fungicides, nematicides
, disinfectants, fumigants, wood preservatives, and plant growth regulators.
Chiquita has claimed that it has reduced its use of nematicides
, like terbufos, by more than 50 per cent since 1995.
