Currently in Europe and Spain we are in the legal framework of Directive 2009/128/EC on the Sustainable Use of Pesticides, which aims to reduce risks of using pesticides that may endanger human and animal health, and the environment. This policy promotes Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and the use of alternative or complementary techniques to those related to conventional chemical pesticides. This does not imply a complete replacement of the use of synthetic agrochemical pesticides, but its rotation, partial replacement or combination with biopesticides as NOFLY.
Futureco Bioscience presents in this Ecoletter the compatibility of bioinsecticide NOFLY with commercial and widely used insecticides and fungicides in order to know if their joint application is feasible within IPM programs.
The tests ran in Futureco Bioscience's R&D laboratories concluded that biopesticide NOFLY can be combined together with insecticides and fungicides based on the active ingredients Kasugamycin, Procymidone, Propamocarb, Cyproconazole, Dimethomorph, Copper Oxychloride, Fenpyrazamin, Pyrimethanil, Iprodione, Fenarimol, Methyl Isothiocyanate, Triadimenol, Myclobutanil, Bupirimate, Triflumizole, Penconazole, Pyrethrins, Beauveria bassiana, Thiamethoxam, Pymetrozine, acrinathrin and Imidacloprid at the concentrations specified in the article, under the trade names referred to therein.
