Most effective control of the invasive pest larvae of the Western Corn Rootworm, causing severe root damage and lodging, thereby offering an ecological control method with equal or higher efficacy than neonicotinoids (banned by EU)
Technical result: average 68% of efficacy of Dianem® through improved nematode and application technology
Economic result: biological solution at the same efficacy and cost as the chemical treatment
Sustainability (ecological, social and economical) Gains:
Reduction of the reliance on chemical pesticides (neonicotinoid seed treatments and granular pyrethroides )
Enables regenerative land use practices, by adding to soil biodiversity
Increased biodiversity enabling long term pest control and resilient cropping systems
Enables worker and consumer health and safety
Promotes more sustainable maize production, better accepted by the public
Supports specialized smallholder farmers’ livelihood and value generation
Improvement of financial viability by reduction of man and tractor hours as well as gasoline as the product is applied at sowing
