Varnimo-IF OMRI Listed is an innovative microbial in-furrow bio-pesticide that works against nematodes and promotes plant growth. Varnimo-IF achieved the Organic Material Research Institute (OMRI) listing for certified organic food production, according to USDA National Organic Program regulations. Varnimo-IF is marketed by Performance Nutrition, 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 parasitic plant nematodes and soil-borne pathogen Rhizoctonia solani. By colonizing the roots of plants, Varnimo-IF 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.”
Performance Nutrition provides environmentally friendly, applicator-safe crop fertility and disease management programs and products that enable farmers to grow stronger crops and increase yields.
