Combi-protec trial results * 2014 (sweet cherry)

The combination of two Mospilan spray treatments (0.125kg/hamKh) and two-time bait treatment with combi-protec 1.0l + Mospilan 25 g/ha (2x) achieved a very good result in the trials against the cherry fruit fly. The infestation was reduced from 22.7% in untreated to 2.5% in the trial variant (efficiency of 89.1%).  The harvest took place 9 days after the last mospilan and 12 days after the last bait treatment. 

Perfecthion (active ingredient diedthoate), used 30 days before harvesting could not significantly increase the effect of the above treatment and shows no difference statistically with 1.4% madeation.
