Best working conditions Capsanem
  • The soil must have a high moisture content
  • Soil temperature between 14°C/57.2°F and 33°C/91.4°F
  • Nematodes are susceptible to ultraviolet light (UV): do not use them in direct sunlight
  • Leaf applications should only be carried out in the evening to minimize the influence of UV light and to maximize moisture availability for the nematodes
