"Every article, conference, and workshop in recent years validates the efficacy of mating disruption technology and encourages adoption. It is the consensus across California’s nut crop industries that mating disruption for navel orangeworm (NOW) is a foundational component of the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program and adds significant value. Record rainfall hit the state in early 2023, replenishing some much-needed water supply but also causing significant destruction to farmland across California. Growers fortunate enough to have viable orchards this season now face the task of reevaluating the harvest potential. Many growers who were unable to
commit to a season-long mating disruption approach are now exploring options to incorporate the technology in their IPM programs by taking advantage of the flexibility and value that sprayable pheromones offer.
There is still an opportunity to use a targeted approach to keep mating disruption pressure on NOW populations.
Suterra’s mating disruption technology offers the industry the longest-acting sprayable option to protect nut crops from navel orangeworm damage while delivering a unique mating disruption mode of action. CheckMate® NOW-F is labeled for application by ground and air, and many growers are taking advantage of the flexibility of this formulation to successfully use a variety of traditional and novel methods to distribute sprayable pheromones into their orchards."
