CONSEP: CHECKMATE TPW RECEIVES FULL EPA REGISTRATION

 BEND, Ore., March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- CheckMate(TM) TPW, a mating disruption product for control of tomato pinworm, has been fully registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Consep Inc. said today. CheckMate TPW is a patented pheromone-based system that dispenses TPW pheromone -- a volatile biological chemical emitted by the insect as part of its communication system.
 The EPA-registered formulation is designed for use as part of an Integrated Pest Management program and is compatible with any fresh market or processing tomato system: poled, staked, trellised or unstaked. The hand-applied dispenser provides up to 75 days of control with a single application.
 California growers experienced serious economic losses due to tomato pinworm in the 1992 growing season, according to Dr. Janice Gillespie, vice president of Product Development for Consep Inc., makers of CheckMate TPW. "CheckMate TPW dispensers are designed for areas where pinworm damage reaches economic levels, which can be anywhere that tomatoes are sequentially produced over a long period of time, winters are mild, and/or crop residues are not promptly destroyed after harvest," said Gillespie.
 In addition to CheckMate TPW, other CheckMate products fully registered with the EPA and in use throughout the world include CheckMate PBW for control of pink bollworm in cotton and CheckMate OFM for control of oriental fruit moth in peaches and nectarines. CheckMate CM for control of codling moth in apples, pears and walnuts is available to participants and cooperators in an EPA-approved Experimental Use Program, as part of that product's EPA registration process.
 In addition to the CheckMate line of mating disruption products, Consep Inc. markets the BioLure(R) line of insect monitoring traps and the SureFire(TM) line of pest control products for consumer markets.
