We offer several insecticides options which provide protection against the most common NZ maize pests – Argentine stem weevil, greasy cutworm, black beetle, and nematodes.
A scientifically formulated non-lethal bird repellent stops birds from eating newly planted maize seed. This unique formulation is based on an organic chemical found in a number of plants, including aloe vera and rhubarb. Each kernel is surrounded with a protective coating that causes birds immediate, yet temporary, digestive discomfort.
