Bumblebee pollination and biological control in tomato and cherry tomato

Use bumblebees as natural pollinators to save labor, improve fruit quality and increase yield.  It is now standard practice for greenhouse tomato growers in most parts of the world. Biobest offers the widest range of bumblebee species, to serve the needs of growers in different countries around the globe.

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.

Tomatoes have many health promoting properties. They are particularly rich in lycopene; a carotenoid known as pro-vitamin A and a strong anti-oxidant. This substance is reported to protect against heart and vascular disease and cancer. Such a wonderful product deserves to be brought to the consumer residue-free. Grow it using the best natural crop care!
