Crop Protection Solutions FOR FARMERS AND GROWERS OF SPECIALTY CROPS

ELEVATE YOUR CONTROL WITH OUR our line of environmentally friendly, sustainable, botanical oil-based biopesticides

If you are a commercial grower, farmer or producer, a big part of your job is the protection of your field-grown fruits, vegetables or greenhouse plants. Threats to your crops are everywhere, and if you let pests in, the problem can escalate quickly. For your conventional and organic agricultural or horticultural businesses to thrive and be profitable, you need high-quality commercial crop protection solutions with proven results that can control or ward off the threats without hurting the crops themselves.  We are here to offer you the right solutions you need to protect your crops.

Kill Mites, Aphids, Whiteflies, Thrips, Lygus, Mealybugs and more with our miticides and insecticides

One of the most ubiquitous and insidious threats to your crops are spider mites and soft-bodied insects. Spider mites are a nearly microscopic creature that feeds on plants' leaves. They can quickly turn into an infestation by 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. Small, soft-bodied insects, such as woolly apple aphids, whiteflies and thrips, can also wreak havoc on your crops.

To minimize the population and control pests in fruiting vegetables and more, you must act quickly with biological biopesticides. An unchecked infestation can render your entire field of crops worthless in a short amount of time. Unfortunately, spider mites and other small, soft-bodied pests tend to be very difficult to kill, having built up a resistance to the many pesticides that have been used against them.

Our sustainable crop protection solutions can help you elevate your control over such pests.

Our TetraCURB Line TetraCURB™ ConcentrateTetraCURB™ Organic and TetraCURB™ MAX have numerous features and benefits that make them the right crop protection solutions to help growers solve their pest problems all year long:

  1. They are safe for labor and workers with no re-entry interval (zero-hour REI)

  3. They are labeled for use on all crops, with no application restriction or limitation
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7.  They are generally safe for use with beneficial insect programs
  8. They can be tank-mixed with other chemistries
  9.  They aid in achieving the same farming goal of sustainable agriculture or organic production
  10. Our formulation at the recommended application rate has shown no phytotoxicity
