BioCeres® WP should be used in prevention or when pest are detected. This product can be applied with conventional pressure spray equipment. Pre-mix before adding the product to the tank.

Mixing guidelines:

  • Weigh 2 to 4 g of BioCeres® WP per liter of water according to the desired volume;
  • Stir the powder into a sealed (airtight) container and add 1 to 2 L of water;
  • Shake vigorously for 30 to 45 seconds until the solution is homogeneous;
  • Add the premix to your tank that has been pre-filled with the desired amount of water;
  • Use a sufficient volume to cover the entire foliage.


 IMPORTANT 

Never mix with hot water!
Never pre-mix in a pail or bucket using a stick or whisk.

This will add too much air to the water and the solution will not mix properly.

Apply BioCeres® WP when the ambient humidity is above 60% and the temperature is between 18 to 29 ºC. Spray in the evening to reduce the risk of spore degradation by UV rays. To control whiteflies and aphids, spray under the leaves where insects are mostly present. To know all about how to apply BioCeres® WP, read our article on the subject!
