Oro Agri biopesticide approved for use in Italy

Italy recently approved the use of Oro Agri International Ltd.'s biopesticide PREV-AM Plus, giving growers there an alternative to many older products being withdrawn by authorities.

The eco-friendly product is based on organically sourced active orange oil. It has been found to provide all-in-one insecticidal and fungicidal activity on a wide range of crops, including olives, grapes and citrus fruits. PREV-AM Plus is registered as an acaricide in the United States and in South Africa, and European trials are encouraging.

Because PREV-AM Plus biodegrades rapidly, it is not persistent in the environment, helping Integrated Pest Management programs in resistance management and providing minimal impact on beneficial insects.

The product is available in 5-liter packs and can be applied in various doses, depending on crop variety. Applications can be made every seven to 10 days, up to a maximum of six treatments per season.
