New registration for Cryptogran to biologically control false codling moth in Table Grapes, Macadamias, Peppers, Pomegranates,  Persimmons, Plums and Peaches

River Bioscience is proud to announce the addition of new crops to the Cryptogran label. Cryptogran was initially registered on Citrus and Avocadoes, and has recently been registered for use on Table Grapes, Macadamias, Peppers, Pomegranates, Persimmons, Plums, Peaches and other crops. Cryptophlebia leucotreta granulovirus forms the backbone of false codling moth (FCM) control strategies in South African citriculture. The virus is used as a full cover spray application during moth flight peaks. Larvae ingest the virus, which causes the larvae to die. Cryptogran has no impact on beneficial insects or negative impact on the environment and is implemented in IPM strategies. See the products page for the new label and application details for each crop.
