Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is proposing registration for the sale and use of Mycotal Technical Biological Insecticide and Mycotal Biological Insecticide, containing the technical grade active ingredient Lecanicillium muscarium strain Ve6, for suppression of whiteflies on greenhouse tomato.

Lecanicillium muscarium strain Ve6 is the active ingredient in the commercial class microbial product Mycotal Biological Insecticide, which suppresses whiteflies on greenhouse tomato. Lecanicillium muscarium strain Ve6 is a fungus that kills insects by infection and growth of hyphal bodies. It is active by contact.

 

Mycotal Biological Insecticide is a new commercial class product that provides suppression of whiteflies on greenhouse tomatoes.

 

Applications of Mycotal Biological Insecticide target the nymph stage of whiteflies. Lecanicillium muscarium strain Ve6 is a new organism for use against whiteflies on greenhouse tomatoes. Mycotal Biological Insecticide will be a valuable part of an integrated pest management (IPM) program for greenhouse tomatoes.
