Biological innovation in plant protection.
Flies of the Sciaridae family inflict the most damage on crops and are very common in greenhouses. In a dedicated cooperation, the German companies e-nema and Katz Biotech have developed nemaplus®depot. Encapsulated nematodes with a long-term and thus preventive effect protect your plants against sciarid larvae infestation even before any damage occurs.
nemaplus® Depot in action
Depot effect -
100% organic and without microplastics
Available in professional
and home & garden units
The special feature of nemaplus®depot is its novel and globally unique formulation: nematodes, are embedded in a water emulsion and enclosed in an alginate-coating. These pearls are introduced directly into the substrate, where they open after a certain time or are opened by the larvae themselves or other microorganisms in the substrate.
The nematodes control the larvae and the plant is protected before any damage can occur. The nematodes an the pearls are 100% organic and dissolve without residue. The perfect solution for your integrated pest management.
