If you are a commercial grower, a farmer or producer, a big part of your job is the crop protection of your field-grown fruits and vegetables or your greenhouse plants. Threats to your crops are everywhere, and if you let something attack them, the problem can escalate quickly. For your agricultural or horticultural businesses to survive, thrive and be profitable, you need high-quality commercial crop protection solutions that can destroy or ward off the threats without hurting the crops themselves.
When it comes to products for optimizing the crops for commercial growers, no one can compare with Kemin Industries. We are responsible for products that affect billions of lives, and we take that responsibility seriously.
The Crop Technologies team has the sustainable crop protection products you need to keep your crops safe and allow you to achieve high quality and marketable produce.
Commercial crop protection is a challenging, complex problem. You want biological controls for crop protection that work. The most effective products for managing pest pressure are ones that can get rid of the problem without posing a threat to your crops. You need a solution with proven results, as you can't afford to apply a product that will damage your crops or plants and find out about it too late.
Among the most ubiquitous and insidious threats to your crops are spider mites. A microscopic creature that feeds on plant’s leaves, spider mites can quickly turn into an infestation, hiding on the underside of the leaves and devouring your crops, leaving a fine white webbing as an indicator they have made your crops their home and food source.
To protect your high-value crops from spider mites, you must act quickly. Unchecked spider mite infestation can render your entire field of crops worthless in a short amount of time. Unfortunately, spider mites tend to be very difficult to kill, having built up a resistance to the many pesticides that have been used against them.
You may find the use of horticultural oils a great sustainable farming practice to adopt to safely ward pests off your crops. However, finding the right horticultural oil blend, of course, is the key.
The good news is that Kemin has an answer. Our line of sustainable pest management solutions TetraCURB™ Concentrate and TetraCURB™ Organic, are our zero-day PHI and zero-hour REI miticides and repellents that are not disruptive to labor or harvest activities and have been rigorously tested and approved for their ability to fight spider mites. When used as part of an integrated pest management program, they help minimize the development of pesticide resistance and can mitigate pests in your production systems.
TetraCURB™ Concentrate is a contact biopesticide based on rosemary oil extracted from our proprietary blend of sustainably-grown rosemary plants that can help kill or repel spider mites with no phytotoxicity. It is a category White MPS-ABC Crop Protection Agent and a terrific alternative to synthetic biopesticides with zero-hour REI and zero-day PHI.
