ICL's Sam Rivers and Andrew Wilson talk vine weevils, a timely topic since the withdrawal of Exemptor with its active ingredient thiacloprid in 2021 means there are fewer options for growers to get rid of this destructive pest.
They give us an introduction to vine weevil and its life cycle and Wilson explains why the pest is becoming more of a problem.
Solutions for controlling vine weevil such as Pitcher GR and using a plant health planner are also aired, while advice is given on Nematodes and how to build an IPM plan.
