Koppert has launched Boveril in Brazil, a bioinsecticide with the conidia fungus active ingredient Beauveria bassiana, which can control coffee borer beetle (Hypothenemus hampei).

As a wettable powder formulation, the product can be also used to control whitefly (Bemisia tabaci), red spider mite (Tetranychus urticae) and gum tree evil (Gonipterus scutellatus).

“It is a high-efficiency bioinsecticide, when used preventively, and can effectively control more than 80% of the pest, besides selectively destroying natural enemies; that is, it does not cause problems to the environment, animals or human health. It is also an excellent option for the concept of integrated plague management,” explained Diego Ramos Bicudo, supervisor of Koppert in Brazil.
