Fawligen in a high quality, high concentrate formulation of Spodoptera fruigiperda nucleopolyhedrovirus (NPV), a naturally occuring and highly effective natural virus of Spodoptera spp. It can be used as a classical insecticide to target economic populations of Fall Armyworm and Beet Armyworm, or applied at first appearance of the pest, which introduces the virus into the crop early to provide season long benefits.

Fawligen is a key tool for the integrated control of Fall Armyworm, as part of an IPM program.  Due to the virus's ability to self-replicate, one application of Fawligen will provide season-long control suppression as the virus multiplies and spreads throughout the caterpillar population.  This can delay the need for chemical control and reduce the overall control costs, and provide large reductions in crop damage to reduce the risk of significant yield loss.

Fawligen provides this continuous pest suppression without impacting beneficial species and causing flare-ups in other insect populations
