A blooming rose crop thanks to a wide range of natural solutions

IPM makes the difference

Biological products are an essential aspect in the cultivation of today's rose crops. But why, precisely, is it such a good idea to choose IPM or integrated crop protection?

  • You help prevent pests and diseases from becoming resistant to chemical pest control methods.
  • You comply with the strict regulations and meet the demands of the consumer.
  • You choose residue-free methods and, therefore, produce natural roses.
  • You reduce the risk of yield losses.
  • You reap a rich harvest by choosing IPM. How? You can count on increased cost-effectiveness and improved quality to help optimise your competitive position.

Biological pest control for roses

Will you also take the step to implement biological strategies in your crops? If so, Biobest offers you a wide range of solutions that can be used safely at any time. You can utilise:

  • a wide range of natural enemies, such as Phytoseiulus-System to control spider mite and Swirskii-System against thrips and whitefly;
  • the nutritional feed supplement Nutrimite™, which ensures that predatory mites − such as Swirskii-System − are working at full strength when an infestation occurs;
  • pheromone traps and sticky traps, such as Bug-Scan®, to monitor and scout pests in the crop;
  • biological insecticides, such as PREFERAL®, as an extra weapon in the control of whitefly or Delfin® against caterpillars;
  • biological fungicides which kill pathogenic moulds in the roots, such as ASPERELLO® T34 Biocontrol®, or on above-ground parts of the plants, such as Prestop®;
  • the thrips pheromone ThriPher to lure thrips out of their shelters.

Did you know that...

… more and more growers are choosing high-quality rose crops, which respect humans and the environment? By reducing chemical pest control methods, or even by banning them completely, you produce roses that can be plucked without a care. And the consumer will also take pleasure in enjoying the (healthy) scent of their fresh bouquet.

The rose market has undergone a true evolution. Traditionally, roses were commercially grown in certain countries where they were directly available to consumers. Over the years, as demand for roses has increased, this crop has developed into an important export product for the ornamental sector. The result? Strict plant health requirements and demands from the consumers – for which biological pest control can make all the difference.
