Controlling powdery mildew and mealybugs are two problems facing many grape growers, but with Biopest they now have the option of using one chemical to control both.
Mealybug control is becoming more difficult with a limited number of chemicals available for control. Biopest has been successfully used to control powdery mildew in the Yarra Valley and Riverland, and has also been used to control mealybug in the Sunraysia and Margaret River region.
Biopest works across four different roles.
- An Insecticide: Effective across a range of cotton and horticultural sucking pests.
- A Carrier: A biological and chemical insecticidal carrier with unique sticking, spreading and UV protective features.
- Behaviour Modifier: Deters feeding and/or oviposition (egg laying) behaviour of a range of key cotton and horticultural pests.
- A Fungicide: Effective stand-alone fungicide across a range of crops.
Biopest has obtained certification with the Biological Farmers Association for use in organic viticulture.

Bayer has announced it will be withdrawing Folicur 430 SC Fungicide from the market once remaining stock on hand has been sold.

Such future developments include the launch of Luna Privilage and Luna Sensation in 2015 and Aviator Xpro in 2016.” – Stuart McLaverty (Portfolio Manager Broadacre Rice and Seed Growth)

All the signs are indicating a very dangerous bush fire season ahead for the coming summer.
Recognising the fire threat likely to be posed for rural acreage dwellers, as well as the farming community, Davey Water Products has pre-planned its production volumes to ensure that adequate stocks of its market leading Davey Firefighter range of engine powered pumps are either in the production schedule or already in stock with the Davey dealer network.
Davey Firefighters are predominantly purchased as a tool for fire protection; however owners soon find that they have many more uses aside from this.
- Being portable they can be transported to virtually any location, so are often used for transferring water from one place to another.
- With a maximum suction lift up to 7 metres they are also ideal for moving wastewater or during episodes of flooding.
- You will also see them installed on the back of farm vehicles for agricultural spraying, though we would recommend requesting the optional Viton seal kit for this purpose.
- Last of all, with the installation of a jet kit they can draw up from 40 metres as an alternative to a bore or deep well pump.
Trying to determine which Firefighter from the Davey range suits your application can be a daunting task as the range is fairly extensive. The best model for the job depends on what you intend on doing with it. When it comes to choosing your model, there are four fundamental points to consider;
- Single stage or two stage?
- Type of engine, petrol or diesel?
- Pull or electric start?
- How much water do you need to pump?
For more information and advice about the Firefighter range and to order your pump, please contact us on 9755 5279.
