Increase Profits, Protect Corn Yield
At Persistent BioControl™, we produce biocontrol nematodes that attack, kill, and multiply inside Western Corn Rootworm larvae before they can damage your corn yield.
In corn, a 5% yield loss has no visible sign above ground but costs you $65 per acre. You could be losing this yield without realizing it.
A single application of our nematodes will protect your failing traited corn against this yield loss, pay for itself in a single growing season, and fight Corn Rootworm resistance for multiple growing seasons.
The corn roots pictured here are from neighboring fields where our biocontrol nematodes were applied six years ago!

Real World Results - A Case Study
in Roswell, NM were treated with persistent nematodes in 2019. The previous year, Bt resistant CRW had overrun the Bt-CRW traited corn, causing a 38% reduction in silage yield.
In 2019, the same year persistent nematodes were applied, silage yield made a full recovery to 2017 levels. The same Bt-CRW traited corn variety was used each year.
in incremental profit was produced in 2019 from this 126 acre center pivot. The 2019 application of persistent nematodes continued to fight CRW resistance and deliver increased profitability in both 2020 and 2021.
