Hear how Zelto helped these growers.

“Over a four month timeline, bio-assays were completed in between each application. At the start of the trial, the population significantly exceeded the threshold count. After the third Zelto application, the population count showed zero nematodes. We were very encouraged by the results.
What I like best are its safety features. Zelto has a cautious signal word, fast re-entry for golfers, and minimal PPE for my workers.”
~ Mike Strube, Feather Sound CC, Clearwater, Florida
