What are the benefits of biological biopesticides?

Our 25(b) Exempt botanical oil-based biopesticides have multiple features and benefits that make them the right crop protection solutions to help growers solve their pest problems all year long:

  • They are safe for labor and workers with no re-entry interval (zero-hour REI)
  • They are not disruptive to harvest activities with no pre-harvest interval, so they can be applied to crops at any time, up to and including the day of harvest or shipment (zero-day PHI)
  • They are labeled for use on all crops, with no application restriction or limitation
  • They are easy to include in an IPM program because they don't have restrictions on the number of applications per crop growing cycle per year and in the number of consecutive applications before rotating to a chemical with different modes of action
  •  They are excellent tools for resistance management. In fact, their complex composition made of multiple active compounds helps reduce the risk of pests developing pesticide resistance.
  • They are exempt from food tolerance requirements (no maximum residue limits, MRLs); the amount of pesticide residue expected to remain on food products as the result of their applications is minimal and not a concern.
  • They are generally safe for use with beneficial insect programs
  • They can be tank-mixed with other chemistries
  • They aid in achieving the same farming goal of sustainable agriculture or organic production
  • Our formulation at the recommended application rate has shown no phytotoxicity.
