Promip extends the use of Macromip Max for biological control of two-spotted spider mites on tomatoes

Promip announced the launch of Macromip Max for the biological control of two-spotted mites on tomato plants. The solution brings together as biological agents the predatory mites Phytoseiulus macropils (reddish in color) and Neoseiulus californicus (yellowish in color).

According to the manufacturer, what makes the predatory mite Phytoselius macropilis more efficient is its body structure, which allows rapid locomotion on the tomato plant. With this, the biological agent meets and reaches the target anywhere on the leaf to eliminate it. 

The two-spotted mite is the only source of food for this predator, and consumes it in all its stages of development. According to tests, Phytoselius macropilis can eat up to 40 eggs or nymphs per day without producing waste.

“Due to the excessive use of chemical acaricides, the two-spotted mite has become resistant to several molecules, which makes pest control in tomato cultivation difficult. In this sense, Macromip Max can revolutionize the sector and improve farmers' productivity”, said Promip CEO, Marcelo Poletti, to Revista Cultivar.

“For years, Macromip Max has been sold by Promip, providing producers with quick and efficient control of the two-spotted mite in the most diverse crops, such as ornamentals, extensive crops and vegetables. Now, the solution can also be applied to tomatoes, which will revolutionize farmer production, increasing productivity and meeting the desire for more sustainable agriculture”, he concludes.
