Last Updated: 04/04/2024

This project with the New Zealand Persimmon Industry Council will evaluate bioinsecticide options for control of mealybugs in persimmons. Four trials are programmed to begin in the autumn of 2024 exploring the efficacy and residue profiles of insecticides.

This work will be of interest to other A Lighter Touch product groups whose crops have the same pest problem, including passionfruit, grapes, citrus and summerfruit.
