Effective, Targeted Control of Key Crop Pests
PFR-97 uses Isaria fumosorosea Apopka Strain 97 to infect and kill target pest insects and mites including aphids, whiteflies, thrips and various mite species. This naturally occurring, entomopathogenic fungus continues to grow and spread once applied to offer maximum protection against plant feeding pests above and below ground. As the infection moves through the pest population, the fungus continuously propagates in the dead and dying pests. Once it kills the pest, spores erupt from the pest ready to infect the nearest suitable host.
Benefits of PFR-97 WDG:
Suggested Uses: Use to control insect pests (including mites) on vegetables, fruits, tobacco, mushrooms and other food crops.
Mode of Action: Isaria fumosorosea, the active component in PFR-97â„¢ 20% WDG, is an entomopathogenic fungus found in infected and dead insects as well as in some soils that infects many insect and mite pests that occur on foliage and other above-ground plants, as well as many soil-dwelling pests. Under proper environmental conditions, spores of the fungus attach to and penetrate the cuticle of the target pest. The fungus grows inside the pest causing its death. The fungus then emerges from the dead pest to release more spores to infect other pests.
Standard Application Rate: Apply PFR-97 to moist or pre-irrigated soil at 1-2 lbs. per acre of soil. Please see manufacturer's label under the DOCS label for more specifics, including use instructions when applying in mushroom houses.
Storage Note: PFR-97 must be kept refrigerated for best results. It is recommended to be used within 30 days of opening.
