Enhance your almond crop
BVT’s proprietary system uses commercial bees to deliver Vectorite with CR-7, an organic carrier agent with BVT’s patented strain of Clonostachys rosea that attaches safely to bees during their normal pollination activities.
BVT’s system is low-maintenance, easy to use, and provides a constant, season-long foundation of disease control applications while lowering fuel and water consumption. Most importantly, the BVT system integrates seamlessly with all standard disease and pest spray programs, no adjustments needed!
