Seipasa, a Spanish company specialized in the development and formulation of bioinsecticides, biofungicides and biostimulants for agriculture, has obtained an extension of the phytosanitary registration for the bioinsecticide Pirecris in Portugal.
The new certification applies to the control of Drosophila suzukii in berries and has been added to the registration that the product already has in this country for the control of aphids, whiteflies and cicadellidae such as the green midge in a wide variety of crops.
Pirecris is a bioinsecticide designed from an exclusive formulation, with a perfect balance between the PI and PII molecules that make up the active substance, which ensures maximum insecticidal efficacy both in the open ground and in greenhouses.
The micromolecules that make up its formulation condense and generate a stable and balanced network throughout the solution. The insecticidal effect works by blocking the respiratory system on eggs and larvae, providing perfect coverage on the leaf and insect.
In addition to Portugal, Pirecris is registered in Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Mexico and Morocco, among other countries.
Pepe Martínez, director of Seipasa's business unit in Europe, celebrated the product's label extension and highlighted the product's efficacy in pest control and elimination.
"The Drosophila suzukii is a pest that has spread rapidly across most European countries. It causes significant crop losses and is particularly damaging to crops such as soft fruit. I think I am not wrong if I say that Pirecris is the solution that berry growers have been waiting for to control this pest," said Martínez.
"Pirecris has the seal of Seipasa's Natural Technology, with an exclusive and innovative formulation that allows the product to respond in every scenario in which it is applied, with a very high efficacy and precision in pest control. Also, Pirecris degrades rapidly and has a short safety period. It is ideal for use in integrated pest management programs and organic production systems," said Martínez.
The director of Seipasa's business unit in Europe also highlighted the product's extensive international background, with phytosanitary registration in 8 countries, and mentioned that a new extension of the label will arrive in the coming months for high value-added crops in strategic markets in Europe.
"Having a phytosanitary registration in different countries around the world, with very different climatic and environmental conditions in some cases, is providing great experience and knowledge, helping us in the improvement of Pirecris as an effective solution able to meet specific needs," said Martínez.
