Exosect gets Turkish green light
Exosect's pheromone technology receives regulatory approval for Grape Vine moth in Turkey
Exosect, a leading provider of intelligent pest management solutions, has announced that its unique pheromone technology has received registration for use on Grape Vine Moth in Turkey.
Registration follows the recent approval for Oriental Fruit moth in Italy and the launch of Codling moth in France earlier this year.
Exosex is a unique pheromone technology which controls moth pests in agriculture, horticulture and food manufacturing. Grape Vine moth is a major global pest of grapes throughout Europe, north and west Africa, the Middle East, eastern Russia and Japan.
Exosex employs Entostat, Exosect’s patented delivery platform, which delivers and disseminates minute quantities of the female sex pheromone throughout the Grape Vine moth population, which in turn prevents mating and subsequent fruit damage. These products form part of a suite of mating disruption products which Exosect have developed using Entostat technology.
Exosex pheromone technology in agriculture is now registered in the UK, France, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Austria, Slovenia, Turkey, USA, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and India.
