-- Varnimo-IF, an innovative microbial in-furrow bio-pesticide against nematodes that also promotes plant growth, achieved the Organic Material Research Institute (OMRI) listing for certified organic food production, according to USDA National Organic Program (https://www.ams.usda.gov/
regulations. Varnimo-IF is marketed by Performance Nutrition (https://www.pnfertilizers.com/)
, a division of LidoChem Inc., based in Hazlet, New Jersey.
varnimo-if/) bio-pesticide provides early-season protection for soybeans, potatoes, and corn from the detrimental effects caused by plant parasitic nematodes and the soil-borne pathogen Rhizoctonia solani. Varnimo-IF acts by colonizing the roots of plants, which in turn reduces nematode reproduction.
It also helps:
• Establish a vigorous root system that can result in enhanced yield potential
• Increase the growth of more uniform foliage
• Encourage stronger plant development
"Varnimo-IF offers protection from parasitic nematodes, which can help both conventional and certified organic growers to achieve higher yields,'" said Don Pucillo, president of LidoChem, Inc. "Varnimo-IF is another mode of action to add to our Performance Nutrition crop management programs."
