Bionema secures Portugal distributor for NemaTrident products


Bionema Ltd. has signed a distribution agreement with Aquamatic Algarve for its NemaTrident range of products. The agreement permits Aquamatic to sell Bionema’s biological NemaTrident range of products in the turf and amenity sector in Portugal.

NemaTrident is a tri-component solution, designed for the control of a range of insect pests of horticulture, turf amenity and forestry. Crane flies (leatherjacket), chafer grubs (chafer beetles) and mole crickets are a major pest in golf courses, sports grounds and lawns. The larval stage of these pests eats the roots of grasses causing economic damage to lawns and turf, leaving visible signs of yellowish patches. These pests cause millions in damage each year in lost income and repairs.

Bionema’s NemaTrident tri-component solution incorporates a range of highly virulent insect-parasitic nematodes within the Heterorhabditis and Steinernema genera. These nematodes attack and destroy the larvae of the insect pests thus preventing future pests from developing. The NemaTrident system also incorporates Bionema’s patent-pending delivery technology, NemaSpreader, which allows nematodes to disperse effectively in the soil and target pests. They are safe, non-toxic to users and consumers, decompose rapidly, and can be targeted at specific pests to avoid harming beneficial insects. End-users are also supported by Europe’s only certified biocontrol training program. The tri-component solution provides 70-100 percent control against pests for end users.

Aquamatic Algarve is the leading distributor of fertilizers, seed, irrigation and specialties to the amenity sector in Portugal.
