The dosage of Chrysopa-E depends on climate, crop and pest density and should always be adjusted to the particular situation. Introduction rates typically range from 10-100 eggs per m2/release. Releases should be made preventively or in infested areas and repeated at weekly intervals until control is achieved. Consult a Koppert advisor or a recognized distributor of Koppert products for advice on the best strategy for your situation.
