ICL webinars tackle future of Vine Weevil control

With the loss of Exemptor (Thiacloprid) in 2021, many growers are wondering how to effectively protect their crops from this prevalent and potentially devastating pest.  To help, ICL is hosting three informative pre-recorded Vine Weevil webinars focusing on the products available and their effective application throughout the growing season.

ICL has been working to provide answers to help growers protect their crops, employing different types of biological products. These three Vine Weevil Webinars explain how to work these into an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programme delivering optimum results.

Titled the ‘Future of Vine Weevil Control’, ICL’s Technical Manager Andrew Wilson and Sales Development Manager Martin Donnelly will present three informative webinars covering important aspects for growing in the future.

Webinar 1                                Pitcher – the New Biorational

Date                                         Monday, 4 May 2020

Times                                       11:00 | 15:45 | 19:30

A new biorational pesticide for the suppression of Black Vine Weevil eggs and early stage instar larvae, Pitcher GR is approved through an Extension of Authorisation for Minor Use (EAMU) in containerised ornamental plants, both protected and outdoors.

Webinar 2                                Seeka – the nematode range from ICL

Date                                         Wednesday, 6 May 2020

Times                                       11:00 | 15:45 | 19:30

Seeka is a range of beneficial nematodes, powered by BASF technology, which helps ornamental growers reduce the risk of damage from pests which feed on their plants. Targeting specific pests such as vine weevil, ICL’s Seeka looks to supplement our portfolio helping to provide growers with a one-stop-shop for their vine weevil plant protection needs.

Webinar 3                                IPM Planning and application

Date                                         Tuesday, 12 May 2020

Times                                       11:00 | 15:45 | 19:30

Andrew Wilson and Martin Donnelly combine the new ICL products in to a coherent IPM programme discussing the important factors to ensure these controls are optimised when applied.

Each webinar is pre-recorded and therefore there is no live Q&A session. However, a follow up email will be sent to enable growers to make product enquires to their local Technical Area Sales Manager, as well as links to product brochures and relevant web pages.
