Grandevo WDG insecticide/miticide is derived from non-living bacteria that effectively controls a wide variety of chewing and sucking insects and mites from the unique action of multiple compounds through repellency, ingestion and reduction of pest fertility. In an integrated pest management (IPM) program, Grandevo WDG offers multiple modes of action that can significantly benefit producers trying to reduce the risk of insect resistance. Grandevo WDG is exempt from the requirement of tolerances and therefore can be sprayed right up to harvest without creating concerns for exported produce or produce that must meet strict residue requirements of the food marketing chain.
Grandevo WDG offers improved handling and better, more convenient packaging. The water dispersible granule mixes easily in spray tanks, which saves applicators valuable time to the field.
