Abstract/Contents:"Ciba-Geigy has reached an agreement with Biosys, a Palo Alto, Calif., biological pest control company, to jointly evaluate a nematode-based product to control insects in turf and ornamental plants. The product controls cutworms and armyworms on turf, and black vine weevils, fungus gnats and white grubs on ornamental plants. Under terms of the agreement, Ciba-Geigy will gather field data regarding efficacy of the nemnatodes, test-market it in selected areas, and conduct market research with turf managers and ornamental growers. Nematodes are microscopic invertebrates that aggressively seek out, attack and kill a broad spectrum of soil-inhabiting insect pests. The Biosys formulation can be applied with standard spray equipment."
