Pyganic Organic Insecticide

Pyganic is an organic, botanical insecticide made from extracts of chrysanthemum daisies grown in Tasmania and elsewhere in the world. It’s a fast-acting, knockdown pyrethrum spray that will control a broad range of pest insects in fruit and vegetable crops. It leaves no residues in crops and can be used up to the day of harvest. The absence of residues also makes Pyganic compatible with IPM. Pyganic is specially formulated in an oil base that allows it to effectively control pests without the need forpiperonyl butoxide (PBO). The absence of PBO allows Pyganic to be approved for organic use by ACO, IFOAM, NOP and BioGro.

Pyganic is a knockdown spray that works on contact so thorough spray coverage is required for good results. Pyganic contains pyrethrins which kill insects by disrupting their nervous systems. As the pyrethrins are plant sourced (and not synthetic) they contain natural variations which help prevent insects building up resistance.

Do not apply in direct sunlight or when temperature exceeds 32°C. Best applied just before dusk or early morning before the sun is at full strength.

Spraying should begin when insects first appear. Do not wait until the plants are heavily infested. Repeat as required to maintain effective control. It is recommended that the final spray mix be buffered to a pH of 5.5 – 7.0. When first using PyGanic, always treat a few plants of each species to ensure crop safety before treating large areas.

PyGanic is a contact insecticide that will kill a broad range of insects, including beneficial insects when present. PyGanic has very limited residual activity. Therefore, to ensure good control, complete coverage of the target crop is necessary.

See label for special mixing and application instructions for tree and vine crops.

PyGanic provides no residual control but is useful in an IPM program where other control methods are in place. Monitor pest presence and spray when first observed on fruit. Apply early evening to dusk after bee foraging has ceased. Repeat applications may be necessary.

Pyganic is compatible with a range of insecticides, miticides, fungicides, adjuvants and wetting agents however we recommend that a small jar test be conducted beforehand. Testing on a small area of foliage before treating the entire area is also recommended.

Pyganic is not compatible with highly alkaline sprays including lime sulfur and Bordeaux mixtures. DO NOT spray with Pyganic when bees or other pollinators are actively foraging.
