BIOPEST is currently registered for use in bananas for the management of leaf spot and leaf speckle and as a carrier for pesticides to improve the level of kill or enhance coverage. SACOA are currently working to amend the label shown below to reduce the rates required. Note: Registration For Sucking Pests In Bananas
BIOPEST is registered for the control of thrips, mites and other sucking pests in other crops such as citrus. SACOA will be conducting the necessary work to seek registration for the control of these pests in bananas.
