Strong working relationship built on trust

30/10/2020 - Philippe Marchenay is a crop advisor at Bordeaux- based distributor Vitivista and has collaborated with Biobest for over 20 years. Today he works with Biobest’s Thomas Doron, advising and supplying IPM products to market gardeners and commercial growers in the Landes-Pyrénées region of South-West France.  

“In my role I advise smallholders growing a range of vegetables and ornamentals, as well as small to medium size growers of summer and winter vegetables and strawberries - about 50% of which are organic,” says Philippe. “I also work with young plant producers and specialist growers of Espelette chilli peppers – a specialist crop grown here in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department.

"While I have seen many Biobest product innovations introduced over the last two decades, the most memorable remains Swirskii–System and Nutrimite™. These products have enabled me to solve major thrips problems in chilli peppers and cucumbers as well as Poinsettias, Cyclamen and Chrysanthemums. Using Nutrimite™ to provide supplementary feeding for Swirskii-System is ideal to promote early and sustainable establishment of mite populations in your crop.”   

“Over the last 20 years I’ve built a strong working relationship with Biobest; like all good long-term relationships it has solid foundations built on trust.”
