Soil insect pests have long plagued farmers by feeding on seeds and crop roots - resulting in lower crop yields, wasted inputs like water, and increased plant disease.
Because soil insects spend most of their life underground, we have surprisingly few options to control them. Many insects, like Western Corn Rootworm, have developed resistance to commonly used insecticides and genetically modified crop varieties like Bt-RW traited corn.
Persistent BioControl offers farmers a new tool to fight soil insect pests - persistent biocontrol nematodes. Our product is certified organic, nontoxic, easily applied, and requires only one application for multiple years of control.
