Crop Enhancement Presents at Entomological Society of America (ESA) Conference
On November 8th, 2017, Crop Enhancement Global Field Development Manager Eric Flora introduced our CropCoat® product to attendees at Entomology 2017, the annual conference of the Entomological Society of America (ESA), in Denver, Colorado.
Eric began with an overview of CropCoat and explained how it can be used to disrupt pest behavior without the use of conventional toxic pesticides. CropCoat is a sprayable film made from naturally-occurring materials that are exempt from EPA tolerances. The film protects crop tissues and reduces insect feeding success on treated plant surfaces.
Eric then shared successful results from bioassays on the cocoa pod borer and the coffee berry borer, pests which respectively affect thousands of cocoa and coffee farmers around the world. He also presented field data showing CropCoat’s effect on other insect types including spider mites and other lepidoptera.

We thank the ESA for the opportunity to present to association members and look forward to sharing updates at the 2018 conference in Vancouver, Canada.
