Project BioFruitNet - Rosy apple aphid (Dysaphis plantaginea) has a fast reproduction cycle and the potential to cause major damage in orchards. Preventive measures such as promoting beneficial insects and pruning are often not sufficient.
Direct control with Azadirachtin (NeemAzal®-T/S, also called Neem) decimates the population and keeps damage below the economic damage threshold.
Neem penetrates the leaves and is absorbed through the feeding activity of the pest. It also helps to control other aphid species such as D. devecta and partially against Aphis pomi.
