Including Botanicals in an Integrated Pest Management Program

Botanical oil-based pesticides are effective tools for integrated pest management programs. They minimize growers’ environmental footprint and provide safe conditions for field workers. Botanical products are also efficacious in their pest knockdown and maximize production efficiencies.

“Too often, growers get caught up in the word “organic” and not the other essential characteristics of biological products. Even a conventional grower who applies synthetic chemistries can apply and use botanical-based biologicals. Sometimes growers think biologicals and OMRI listed products do not work as well as synthetic chemistries. They tend to have a reactive approach to problems over a proactive approach. Biologicals tend to be more of a proactive approach and require more awareness of when problems occur. With this knowledge, even conventional growers can add biologicals to their IPM program,” said Michael Hull, Technical Services Manager for Kemin Crop Technologies.
