OPtimized TEKnology Miticide
Keep Mites Down and Your TREE NUTS Strong with Onager Optek® Miticide!
Onager Optek is a proprietary liquid formulation for almonds and walnuts that minimizes the use of solvents. This pre-emulsified formulation offers unique attributes to tree nut growers for mite control:
- Liquid formulation for easier handling
- Improved translaminar activity
- Enhanced coverage through droplet spreading
- Less phytotoxic ingredients than traditional emulsifiable concentrates
- Easy on the beneficial insect complex
Unique blend of surfactants can aid distribution of product across the leaf surface. More contact and retention of spray droplets improves coverage and efficacy. Coverage improves with better spray droplet contact angle with leaf.
how it works
Onager Optek's active ingredient affects all stages of the spider mite. Female mites lay unviable eggs and all immature stages are unable to develop. Mites cycle through the present generation but there are no survivors to progress the population. Adulticides or miticides which do not have activity across the life stages leave eggs and nymphs to continue with succeeding generations.
