Sweet pepper and Hot pepper

Sweet pepper growers are leading the pack when it comes to biological pest control for a successful crop

IPM makes the difference

Biological products are an essential aspect in the cultivation of today's sweet and hot pepper 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 healthier sweet and hot peppers.
  • 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 fruit quality to help optimise your competitive position.

Biological pest control for sweet and hot peppers

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 Swirskii-System, to control thrips and whitefly but also Orius-System against thrips and Aphidius-System to control aphids;
  • 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.

Bumblebee pollination of sweet and hot peppers

Even though sweet pepper plants are generally speaking self-pollinating, cross-pollination is gaining in popularity. Bumblebees ensure improved fruit quality and can significant increases profits from your sweet pepper crop. As a result, sweet pepper growers are employing bumblebees more and more. Biobest would be happy to help you choose from our wide range of bumblebee hives in order to meet your specific needs.
