Leaf Miners are difficult pests to manage in greenhouse production of ornamental plants. Leaf Miner adults lay eggs in plant tissue and the larvae feeds and develops within the leaf, causing considerable damage.

At BioSafe Systems we’re constantly striving to provide sustainable and effective solutions to real world issues that affect our customers and growers. In June 2014, we initiated a lab study to assess the efficacy of our OMRI listed and EPA approved product AzaGuard to prove that this insecticide/nematicide is effective in managing leaf miners on greenhouse ornamentals.

The experimental design consisted of a number of Gerbera Daisy’s being held until leaf miners reached a level of about five mines per leaf. There were 15 different treatments applied and a water control, each replicated six times. Weekly sampling of all treatments continued until July 30, 2014.

The study identified AzaGuard as an effective option in controlling Leaf Miners on ornamentals. AzaGuard was one of the few products that provided excellent leaf miner control, reducing leaf miners to fewer than five mines per leaf by the second week of the trial.

Research Shows BioSafe Product ZeroTol 2.0 Effective Against Botrytis Blight on Geraniums

February 2015

 

Botrytis Blight or Gray Mold is a common disease in many greenhouse grown crops including Geraniums. Botrytis Blight usually affects plants at the tip of younger leaves, causing a water-soaked area. The infected areas enlarge and fungus appears to grow down onto the main stem. This disease has been a problem for greenhouses of all sizes for many years.

Here at BioSafe Systems we are constantly striving to solve real world issues that affect our customers and growers. In February 2015, we initiated a lab study to assess the efficacy of our OMRI listed and EPA approved bactericide ZeroTol 2.0 to prove that this crop solution is effective in managing foliar blight on Geraniums.

The experimental design was a randomized complete block with 13 treatments and 5 plant replications. Two rates of ZeroTol 2.0 (1:80; 1.6 fl.oz of ZeroTol 2.0 per gallon of water and 1:200; 0.64 fl.oz per gallon of water) were evaluated in this study. A total of 5 applications were made with ZeroTol 2.0 on a 7-day interval. Each plant received approximately 100 ml of spray solution per application.

The study identified ZeroTol 2.0 as an effective option in controlling Botrytis Blight in Geraniums. The average disease incidence and severity ratings were statistically lower in plants treated with ZeroTol 2.0. The treatments also showed an improvement in plant height, especially with the higher rate of ZeroTol 2.0.
