Carrots & parsnips

Alternation with Movento and Biscaya gives best control of sucking pests, particularly carrot willow aphid (Cavariella agopodii) which has recently been shown to exhibit resistance to pyrethroid insecticides.

These are typical programmes in carrots where aphids appear in the crop in the early crop stages. In general, the key focus of Movento-Biscaya aphicide programmes is from May to mid-July when migration peaks and populations are multiplying strongly. Use Biscaya for knock-down effect on migrating aphids and Movento to prevent population growth and spread.

Thanks to re-registration during 2018, the latest time you can now apply Movento in carrots and parsnips is three weeks before harvest.

Movento and Biscaya significantly reduce the number of aphids after a single application. Graph shows wingless willow-carrot aphid reduction (BCS contract trial 2016: Warwick University, 1x application. Treatments applied 10 June).

Resistance management

Use Movento with other insecticides that have a different MoA (mode of action), either in alternation or as a two-spray block within the programme.

If you use a neonicotinoid seed or soil treatment, apply Biscaya once only, separated by an aphicide with a different MoA. The Movento user guide will tell you more.

Brassicas and other field veg

You can use Movento and Biscaya on a wide range of outdoor brassica crops, such as broccoli/calabrese, Brussels sprout, cabbage and cauliflower, together with swede and turnip. Movento has outdoor collard, kale and spring greens on-label, while Biscaya provides cover via EAMU 20142249.

A programme based on Movento and Biscaya will provide protection against both aphids and whitefly.

Example programmes

It’s possible to take two approaches:

Aphid-focused control:

Begin foliar control programmes as soon as aphids appear in the crop and when the protection provided by neonicotinoid seed/module treatment (if used) has run out.

Use Biscaya for quick knock-down when crop structure is more open and aphids are more exposed to sprays and at the end of the season when colder conditions prevail. Use Movento for long-lasting protection in dense actively growing crops, when pests are hidden. This programme should also control any whitefly present.

Whitefly-focused control:

This shows example foliar spray programmes for whitefly control in Brussels sprouts starting in July when whitefly first appear in the crop. A programme will also control early-season aphids.

Resistance management
