PFR-97 20% WDG Microbial Insecticide, For control of insect and mite pests on vegetables, fruits, and other food crops
PFR-97 20% WDG Microbial Insecticide contains a naturally occurring fungus that controls some of agriculture’s most devastating pests, including whitefly, aphid, thrips and spider mite.
Paecilomyces fumosoroseus, the active ingredient in PFR-97 20% WDG Microbial Insecticide, is a naturally occurring fungus that infects several insect pests, including whitefly, aphid, thrips and spider mites. Under proper environmental conditions, spores of the fungus attach to and penetrate the cuticle of the insect pest. The fungus grows inside the insect causing its death. The fungus then emerges from the dead insect to release more spores to infect other insects.
PFR-97 20% WDG Microbial Insecticide can be used in conjunction with most other pesticides and is compatible with beneficial arthropods. It can be mixed with copper-based fungicides without impacting performance. However, do not mix with other fungicides, or apply within 5 days of fungicide applications other than copper. PFR-97 20% WDG Microbial Insecticide can be mixed with most insecticides, for which such mixing is permitted by the label, in accordance with the most restrictive label limitations and precautions of all products used in the mixture. Do not exceed any label dosage rates. However, physical compatibility should be checked by mixing small quantities of each tank mix partner in correct proportions (“jar test”) prior to the first time such a mixture is attempted.
