TECHNOLOGY > Integrated Pest Control

The principles of Integrated Crop Management are applied, aiming to prevent insect introduction into the greenhouse and disease infestation on the crop. The result is to produce pesticide free fresh agricultural products of excellent quality and high nutritional value, regarding the hygiene and safety of in-house personnel.

To succeed this goal, a crop protection model has been developed, based on:
• Maintaining of a negative environment for disease development by fully controlling of greenhouse climate (temperature, humidity, ventilation etc).
• Installation of insect nets in all greenhouse windows, in order to inhibit insect’s introduction into the greenhouse
• Systematic control of personnel and visitors hygiene (clothing, shoes disinfection, etc) targeting to eliminate disease contamination.
• Systematic control of weeds around the greenhouse
• Installation of insect traps into the greenhouse aiming to monitor harmful insect populations
• Daily scouting of plants’ sanitary conditions by trained personnel, securing prompt reaction and minimum disease spreading
• Beneficial insects release aiming to maintain a balanced population with insect pests in order to minimize chemical treatments.

The result is to produce pesticide free fresh agricultural products of excellent quality and high nutritional value, regarding the hygiene and safety of in-house personnel.
