The authorisation for the product was sought by AHDB’s Minor Use team, in collaboration with Alpha Biocontrol and Fargro, following successful performance within SCEPTREplus, the crop protection research trials.
FLiPPER provided a significant reduction in verbena flower damage in the 2017 trials on western flower thrips, compared to the control when used in combination with N. cucumeris.
The product was coded AHDB9970 in the trials, and the full report can be read here.
Jude Bennison, ADAS entomologist, who conducted the trials has also written a summary about the trials. Read her blog here.
