METAWHITE-Plus
Biopreparation of insecticidal action to protect plants from soil pests

Biological effect of the biopreparation:

✔  Protection of plants from soil pests, namely: imago and larvae of may beetle, Tropinota hirta, mole cricket, click beetle, caterpillars of owlet moths, etc. Entomopathogenic fungi Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana are able to grow through the skin of pests, damaging adipose tissue and intestinal tract, where they decompose chitin and form a cotton-like growth of mycelium on the body of pests, causing violations of all body functions. Due to the content of spores, endo- and exotoxins produced by the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, the preparation causes intestinal dysfunction, paralysis of the nervous system, muscle tissue, and respiratory system.

Intended use:

✔ pre-sowing treatment (basic tillage, cultivation, before harrowing);
✔ row fertilization, fertigation. 

How to use:

Soil spraying is carried out with a sprayer or sprinkler - before disking, plowing, cultivation, sowing or planting agricultural crops.

Row fertilization is carried out with an applicator - during sowing.

Fertigation (band application) is carried out with a drip irrigation system - during the growing season of plants.

Application features:

The biopreparation is used as a working solution prepared on the day of treatment.

Shake the biopreparation before use!

METAWHITE-Plus is compatible in a tank mixture with adhesives, growth stimulants and other plant protection products of biological and chemical (except fungicides) origin. It is recommended to conduct a compatibility test in advance (if a precipitate falls out when mixing two preparations the preparations are not compatible).

The required application rate of the biopreparation is thoroughly stirred in water of temperature from 10C to 25C.

The working solution should be used immediately after preparation or stored for no more than 4 hours in a place protected from light.

The most efficient way is to bring (water) it in the wet soil to the place where pests stay (the root zone of plants).

It is advisable to treat the soil in autumn during the rainy season in order to clear it of pests by the beginning of the season. It is also recommended to use for tillage, watering and irrigation in spring.

In summer, you can repeat the treatment by irrigation or drip irrigation, preferably in the evening, avoiding direct sunlight.

To prevent the outbreak of pests, treatment should be carried out every season.

The last treatment can be carried out 5 days before harvest!
