Plant health starts with a robust root system. But Grape Phylloxera and Grape Rootworm can seriously damage these root systems - setting off a cascade of negative consequences that end in plant death and lost profit.
Over reliance on legacy solutions like resistant root stocks have reduced their effectiveness and require the replanting of entire vine blocks. This requires huge capital investments and interrupts grape production.
At Persistent BioControl, we produce insect attacking nematodes that kill grape rootworm larva and grape phylloxera aphid before they can damage your vineyard.
Our nematodes are microscopic worms that live in the soil. Just one application will protect your field for multiple growing seasons, lowering soil insect pest pressure and protect valuable yield.
Our product can be applied through any ground spray rig - no special equipment required. And you can apply anytime the soil temperature is above 50F.
Pricing starts at $200 / acre for our Grape Phylloxera and Grape Rootworm formula. Discounts are available for large orders.
Since our nematodes are persistent, this is one-time expense that will pay dividends for years to come.
For fields with center pivot irrigation, our nematodes can be injected straight into the irrigation water.
Alternately, any ground spray rig can be used for application. To prepare the sprayer, flush the tank and all lines, then remove all screens and filters.
