In October 2019, Grow Seven conducted a set of trials to determine the efficacy and ROI of its insecticides - Aramite, Bemix, and Ovex - in controlling white fly population on broccoli and cauliflower crops. The trials took place on the Alder Ranch in El Centro California.
To make it happen, Grow Seven compared white fly population counts in randomly selected plants before, during, and after application over a period of 5 days. To determine the products’ efficiency, water PH was also tested, though not altered.
Although all treatments successfully reduced white fly population, Grow Seven observed that the effect of each of the tested pesticidal spray varied according to the application timing.
The recommendation is to apply the following treatments as part of a rotational IPM program:
The final conclusion did find the combination of Aramite @ 24oz +Bemix @16 oz to achieve better control results, partly due to the fact that it also showed superior residual resistance. In any commercial applications, greater residual control is an important factor since it guarantees a broader coverage.
With the trial completed, Grow Seven has the following recommendations:
