Argentine Senasa acquires bioinsecticide

The Argentine plant health inspection service, the Senasa, has acquired the bioinsecticide, Carpovirus Plus ( Cydia pomenella granulosis virus) and protective clothing for users. The purchases are to be used to strengthen codling moth ( C pomonella) controls that have been developed in the Catamarca and La Rioja regions. The acquisition was financed through a deal between the Senasa and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). The acquisition marks a turning point towards more environmentally friendly methods, the Senasa says. The supply of the new products will help to: strengthen the service’s national codling moth suppression programme; lower the use of insecticides that “are aggressive towards the environment”, such as organophosphates; and favour the use of organic and biological products as well as raise awareness among uses of how to use them. The product is applied to the foliage and fruit at 50 cc/100 litres.
