Canvast's favorite Go-To for tackling caterpillars in your hemp crop.
DiPel DF is a dust-free dry flowable insecticide that kills caterpillars and borers using the bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis v. kurstaki or Btk. OMRI Listed, it is labelled to control most Lepidopteran (caterpillar) insects on fruits, citrus, tropical fruits, vegetables, grains, bulbs, flowers, herbs, turf, ornamental trees and shrubs. After ingesting a lethal dose, larvae stop feeding within the hour and will die within a few hours to 3 days. It is best used when the larvae are actively feeding but before the plants are heavily damaged.
Low Impact on Workers and the Environment
With its highly specific activity and natural origin, DiPel does not harm important beneficial insects such as bees for pollination, insect predators, and parasites used in the control of other insect pests. DiPel is also not harmful to humans, wildlife, or the environment, providing growers with much-needed flexibility.
Every lot of DiPel is tested on over 2000 lepidopteran larvae at various stages in manufacturing.
The multiple modes of action present in DiPel have made it the premier insect resistance management tool for more than 40 years.
Harvest and Residue Management
DiPel can be applied up to the time of harvest and is exempt from residue tolerance (zero PHI, regional regulations may vary). This makes DiPel a critical tool during periods of multiple harvests and for late-season applications, enabling a program that meets the most exacting Maximum Residue Level (MRL) demands.
DiPel is OMRI® listed and USDA National Organic Program (NOP) certified.
