Chile starts agchem applications on grape moths

Chemical controls commenced this week against European grapevine moths (Lobesia botrana) in Chile. The Ministry of Agriculture’s agriculture and cattle service, the SAG, set the launch date of October 14th for applications of SAG-authorised insecticides on plum and blueberry orchards in two regions. For grapevines, the start of applications depends upon verification that in the majority of properties there are clusters of moths on stalks. Growers are to inform the authorities 24 hours prior to any applications. Cultivation is to be protected for 30 days from the initial applications, with second applications to be made a couple of days before the end of that period. First applications are to be made no later than October 24th, or six days later in two provinces. The SAG issued a list of 20 active ingredients in 30 products for emergency use controls in August.
