Trichogramma achaeae is an endoparasite that develops inside of Tuta absoluta eggs. The parasitic wasp searches Tuta absoluta eggs to parasitize among the leaves. In addition, the adult of Trichogramma achaeae feeds on eggs of Tuta absoluta.
It is recommended to release from 1 to 2 cards (50-100 dispensers/ha). The pest is successfully controlled with fortnightly releases during the flight season of Tuta absoluta. For stronger infestations use 2-4 cards/ha.
The dose varies depending on the crop, the season, the weather and the level of infestation of the pest. Consult an Agrobío field advisor.
TRICHOcontrol is used in tomato crops and also several horticultural, ornamental and fruit crops where Tuta absoluta is affecting.
Release the product uniformly early in the morning or at sunset in both indoor and outdoor crops. If the product format is in cards, separate the cards and arrange them in the crop leaving enough space so that the pupae can work uniformly and control the pest.
