Bioline Agrosciences is launching CART (Climate Adapted Release Technology) to further strengthen it’s commitment to growers and farmers and the environment.
The technology has been applied to STARSKii, containing Amblyseius
swirskii, for optimized control of thrips and whitefly in multiple crops and conditions.
An innovation for farmers
Climate change is changing our environment, and this is affecting the
conditions that crops, pests and beneficials exist in. STARSKii takes all the attributes of Amblyseius swirskii, a highly adaptable mite with a proven ability to cope with changes in the crop, pest and environment together with an innovative new release system under CART technology to meet the needs of both farmers and beneficial insects.
Several years of research behind Technology Protects
Bioline Agrosciences is recognized for being the world specialist in
applied Biocontrol technologies with an R&D department working for
more than 40 years in the field of insect releases for crop protection.
First releasing the innovative Controlled Release System sachet in 1991, which has been the gold standard ever since, the new sachet in STARSKii combines pre-conditioning of the contents, permeability of the sachet and a carefully balanced formulation to produce perfect conditions for mite development and subsequent control of thrips and whitefly.
Dr. Caroline Reid, Senior Technical Lead Bioline Agrosciences ”We work hand to hand with technical, production and R+D teams to continuously improve and adapt to growers needs with an environmentally friendly approach; CART technology has boosted performance in the field, bringing high fecundity from the first day of release to give an increased effectiveness against whitefly and thrips”.
STARSKii & CART: the winning combination u STARSKii Excellent establishment and consistent populations throughout the growing cycle with higher fecundity and higher fertility. u STARSKii Optimal behaviour and response to increasing and reducing incidence of pests. Highly effective control of whitefly and thrips.
