A nematicide with fungicidal activity by Bayer, called Velum One, will be registered in California for use on almonds, tomatoes, strawberries, brassicas and cucurbits.

It will help to control yield-robbing nematodes for California growers. Velum One’s active ingredient combats nematodes and damaging diseases by moving from roots to leaves.

“During trials, early season application has been shown to protect root heath and get plants off to a great start,” Joel Lipsitch, product manager for Bayer, said. “With Velum One, we will not only protect crops early in the season, but more importantly, we will give growers confidence that they’re using the right tools for the best return on their investment.”

It can be applied through drip-micro chemigation, which produces wide-spectrum nematicidal activity enhancing existing nematode management programs. It works within hours to suppress even early season diseases.

“Field trials have shown that Velum One significantly increases yields and has an even greater impact when used with the insecticide/nematicide Movento and full disease management products like Luna,” Lipsitch said. “Once registered, Velum One will bring excellent protection to California crops in the coming year. We’re thrilled to bring growers a great option for nematode management to help maximize yield.”
