Nemguard DE

Nemguard DE is a granular nematicide which can be applied to soils through an appropriate granule applicator. It is formulated as a micro granule containing 45% garlic extract.

Utilising Ecospray’s patented technology it has a stabilised and recognised DAS fingerprint delivering consistent performance.
With no MRL and effectively no PHI it is an ideal fit into residue reduction programmes and with an extremely low risk of resistance developing due to its mode of action into anti-resistance programmes.

Sample Approval refer to the specific label for the country concerned.

Nemguard PCN

Nemguard® PCN is granular non-systemic nematicide containing 45% garlic extract. Utilizing Ecospray’s patented technology it has a stabilized and recognized DAS fingerprint. It is currently registered in the UK for use in potatoes.

It is a different formulation from Nemguard® DE as it is required to behave differently in soils where it is broadcast incorporated into the ridge at planting rather than placed around the surface of drilled seed as in a carrot or parsnip crop at sowing.

Sample Approval refer to the specific label for the country concerned.

Nematode Facts

Plant parasitic nematodes can be attracted to host root systems by exudates released from the roots as the plant grows.

Cyst nematodes can be more difficult to control than free living nematodes.
