Microbial Insecticide has New Formulation

OHP has made a formulation change to its Ancora Microbial Insecticide, designed to make spray applications easier in a greenhouse and nursery.

OMRI listed and approved for organic production, Ancora contains a naturally-occurring fungus that infects both foliar and soil-dwelling pests such as whiteflies, thrips, aphids, leafminers, spider mites, grubs and other pests.

The new Ancora is formulated on a different carrier which allows the product to mix more readily in water for easier sprayer application.

“The new Ancora is formulated on a diatomaceous earth granule which will make it easier to mix and then move through spray equipment without clogging filters,” noted Dr. Carlos Bográn, OHP manager technical service.

Growers using Ancora through a hydraulic sprayer can mix in water and spray.

“We still recommend growers using Ancora through a fogger allow the product to decant in water for 20 to 30 minutes before pouring in a tank and spraying,” notes Dr. Bográn.

The active ingredient in Ancora —Isaria Fumosorosea Apopka 97 strain, provides fast broad-spectrum activity on both foliar and soil insects in the greenhouse, nursery, and landscape markets. Ancora may be used on vegetables, herbs, certain fruits, and other crops.
