Rose: invest now in gallicus

Rose growers who doesn’t want to be unpleased surprised during the season, need to invest now in the building-up of their predatory mite population.

The predatory mite Euseius gallicus (Dyna- Mite® G- System) is a true generalist. This beneficial controls both thrips as whitefly, two main pests in the cultivation of roses. Moreover, this predatory mite has a talent to maintain a stable population – if introduced on time and additional pollen feeding at regular moments.

Rose growers in Belgium and The Netherlands who want to avoid the extra curative introduction of predatory mites during the season, have to act now. “it is indeed necessary to come into action now,” says Sam Gui, advisor at Biobest Belgium. “Growers have to order Dyna-Mite® G-System, together with an amount of Nutrimite™, the food supplement for predatory mites, developed by Biobest. Because of this, they already build-up a strong predatory mites population even before the pest is present.”

Sam advises his growers to introduce Dyna-Mite® G-System in two stages, with an interval of one week. “Afterwards, growers have to give additional feeding with Nutrimite™ on a two-weekly basis. They will notice that this will provide a better implantation and better population growth.”
