Mating Disruption for Codling Moth
CheckMate® CM 2.0 Flowable
CheckMate® CM 2.0 Flowable is Suterra’s pioneering sprayable pheromone release formulation for codling moth (CM) in apples, pears, walnuts and crops where CM is present.
This is an easy-to-deploy, flexible option for CM control, CheckMate® CM 2.0 Flowable easily fits into growers’ existing integrated pest management (IPM) program. It is tank-mixable with common agrochemicals and works well with nearly any water volume. This product releases the CM sex pheromone in microcapsules throughout the vineyard, reducing adult males’ ability to find females to disrupt the mating cycle and suppress pest populations.
CheckMate® CM 2.0 Flowable gives growers the flexibility to spray few or many times throughout the season depending on the timing and pressure of CM in their orchards.
