Sweet pepper and Hot pepper

Biological control and bumblebee pollination in sweet pepper and hot pepper

Use biological control to ensure a vigorous and healthy crop and to cut back on harmful and persistent pesticides. Pests develop resistance to pesticides: a vicious circle leading to even more chemicals yet poorer pest control. With biocontrol as your first line of defense in Integrated Pest Management, get good yield and high quality, offer a safe working environment for your employees, preserve nature and achieve residue-free production. Retailers and consumers demand safe food produced in a sustainable way. Good IPM practice is thus also an essential marketing tool.

In some circumstances flower morphology of peppers can be inadequate to ensure self-pollination. In periods of difficult fruit setting, the use of bumblebees on peppers has been proven to result in better fruit quality and a substantial increase in yield. It is now an increasing practice for greenhouse pepper growers in modern horticulture worldwide.

There are many health promoting qualities attributed to peppers. They contain more vitamin C than oranges and are particularly rich in capsicum, especially the hot peppers, which have a pain relieving, expectorant and diuretic effect. Such a remarkable vegetable deserves to be brought to the consumer residue-free. Grow it using the best natural crop care!
