BioWorks Introduces New Biopesticide

BioWorks has launched a new biopesticide BotaniGard MAXX.

The new mycoinsecticide has a quick knockdown effect with natural pyrethrins paired with Beauveria bassiana Strain GHA as the active ingredients, according to BioWorks.

BotaniGard MAXX is a formulation based on the combination of natural pyrethrins and Beauveria bassiana Strain GHA. They are formulated together in an emulsifiable dispersible oil.

The interaction between Beauveria bassiana Strain GHA and natural botanical pyrethrins is synergistic.

This combination results in multiple modes of action and pest control results comparable to those obtained when using synthetic chemical alternatives, according to BioWorks. BotaniGard MAXX is a new tool for IPM for a wide variety of insects and spider mites.

BotaniGard MAXX is a rotation partner with BotaniGard. When insect pressure is high, use BotaniGard MAXX, then follow up with your BotaniGard program, the company said.
