Please come to our stand 604 to find out more about our products, including:

Optiroll super plus, our award winning roller trap infused with the Western flower thrips pheromone. This patterned roll with WFT pheromone doubles the thrips trap catch and significantly reduces thrips numbers between 50-88% in the field.

Suzukii traps are equally effective at catching Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD) as the market leader but have a reduced catch of non-target species, making it easier to count and identify SWD.' Xlureswd is our new Spotted Wing Drosophila dry lure that lasts for up to three months in the field.

PrediPal is an innovative new tool for pest management that attracts natural enemies into the crop, improves the distribution of natural enemies through the crop and delays the build-up of pest hot spots.

Yokosan, an organic, liquid fertiliser based on potassium, humate, water extract of worm castings and beneficial microorganisms, is our latest crop adjuvant. This Ecocert organic-certified product promotes plant growth and makes plants more resistant to frosts, droughts, salinity and biotic stress at a low application rate of 1 litre per hectare.

Finally, we have a new range of specialist pheromones, including fruit midge species and strawberry blossom weevil.
