CIDETRAK® NOW MESO™ – A Strong Return on Investment


We are seeing a strong return on our investment

“This is the first year we decided to use a mating disruption product for NOW. Having said that, we looked at all of our options and decided to go with Trécé’s CIDETRAK® NOW MESO™. The Almond farm I manage is roughly 2,500 acres and we made the decision to treat the entire orchard. I’m glad that I did.

Last year, we sustained an average of 2.5% NOW injury on our Almonds. This year in 2020, NOW injury on average was reduced to just below 1%. The product performed as expected and I am very pleased with the results.

We ran our normal spray program along with CIDETRAK. By reducing the NOW injury over 60%, the product more than paid for itself. We are seeing a strong return on our investment in CIDETRAK.

Installing the product went very smooth for us. We pre-assembled the MESO’s on the hooks that come in the case, then sent the crew out to apply in the orchard. In the orchard, we averaged applying 5 acres per hour/per man. This method worked great for us and it’s my intention to repeat the processes next year.”
