Agrovista is fully committed to practicing the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), and that couldn’t be more the case than for our team of fruit specialists.

Within agriculture, there is a need to reduce the reliance on chemical pesticides and improve awareness of alternative control methods. Although IPM is not a new concept, potential product revocations and tightening restrictions mean that its role in crop production is becoming more important than ever.

For British fruit growers, issues such as resistance management, reducing residue levels, and maintaining quality standards have become a daily concern. But through a range of innovative IPM products, Agrovista aims to provide fruit growers with the tools they need to overcome these problems, ensuring their business is not only sustainable, but profitable too.

Regardless of the problem faced, Agrovista fruit agronomists have IPM at the fore when it comes to finding a solution. From Wignest predator shelters to the latest in pheromone disruption technology, our open-minded, creative approach combined with the latest industry product advancements demonstrates we take this issue seriously.

Our IPM offering includes;

  • Pollinators
  • Biocontrol
  • Application machinery
  • Wignest
  • Soil health
  • Growers Choice Interactive

Head of Fruit Mark Davies: “We all recognise that we cannot continue as we have been doing - it’s our collective responsibility to take positive action and make a change. It’s not about removing chemicals completely, it’s about using them in a targeted and therefore efficient manner.”
