Usage tips

ECODIAN® STAR should be applied before the beginning of the flight of the first generation of Carpocapsa (overwintering generation), following the indications of the forecast models provided by thye Phytosanitary Services and/or coincide with the very first catches in Carpocapsa pheromone traps. The application of the dispensers from the second generation of Carpocapsa (beginning of the second flight) can only be carried out if there is no damage to the fruit (oviposition and/or larval penetration) from the chemically controlled first generation. Apply ECODIAN® STAR dispensers to the upper third of branches in shaded areas if possible, taking care to distribute evenly, also protecting uncovered areas such as fallows, corridors and breeding plants. In order to be effective, the number of spreaders should be sufficient to compete with the females in the orchards and minimise the likelihood of males detecting their calls. The minimum number of ECODIAN® STAR diffusers required for each application is 2000 per hectare, this number should be increased to 2500/3000 per hectare with high populations, talla and vigorous plants. In orchards with ECODIAN® STAR, Cydia pomonella should be monitored with CARPO or CARPO+ and Cydia (Grapholita) molesta with TRAPTEST®. This allows you to monitor the progress of the system by installing the traps before the start of the wintering generation flights. The control of the traps is very important and must be carried out meticulously. The absence of catches indicates that the disorientation conditions have occourred and presist. The activity of ECODIAN®STAR diffusers is influenced by climatic parameters, under normal conditions it lasts for approximately 60/75 days.
