Application technology

Biology dispensers are mechanical solutions designed to improve the efficient automatic and even distribution of beneficial mites, and certain insects, into a crop - optimising biocontrol while reducing labour.

Challenges to overcome

Manual distribution of beneficials is generally labour intensive and therefore time consuming. To optimise IPM programmes, preventative blanket treatments need to result in even distribution of beneficials throughout the crop – with the insects, or mites, unharmed during this process.

To achieve good distribution manually requires a high level of knowledge, skill, discipline, and focus.

Benefits of application technology

Using a quality mechanical applicator eliminates human error from this crucial process. Mechanical airflow ensures even distribution, enhancing the uniformity of beneficials in the crop. Gentle dispensing ensures the consistent release of unharmed, healthy insects and mites. Moreover, application technology equipped with multiple dispensers accelerates distribution in the crop, thereby rapidly reducing labour costs.

When to use

New application technology can now replace manual release of mites and insects, enabling preventative blanket or curative hotspot treatments.
