It has been estimated that between one quarter and one third of the world’s grain crop is lost each year during storage due to insect attack. Many grain pests preferentially eat out grain embryos, thereby reducing the protein content of feed grain and lowering the percentage of seeds which germinate. Some important stored grain pests include the lesser grain borer, rice weevil, flour beetle etc.
Insect populations of many species have evolved resistance to chemical insecticides and its residual effect has been a major concern. MIKBIOFUME is a bio-fumigant which is a blend of plant and microbial extracts showing high Insect toxicity on these stored pests with no residual persistence. The product being organic in origin has low mammalian toxicity with no environmental hazards.
MIKBIOFUME contains mixture of gases that can potentially act as disinfest and cause mortality under enclosed conditions. The product effectively controls all stages of the insects present in or amongst the grains under controlled conditions. Dosage
