Grower Challenges and Needs

Commercial crop protection is a challenging, complex problem. You want biological controls for crop protection that work. The most effective products for managing plant pests are ones that can get rid of the problem without posing a threat to your crops. You need a solution with proven results, as you can't afford to apply a product that will damage your plants and find out about it too late.

Among the most ubiquitous and insidious threats to your crops is the spider mite. A microscopic creature that feeds on plants, spider mites can quickly turn into an infestation, hiding on the underside of your plant leaves and devouring your crops, leaving a fine white webbing as an indicator they have made your plants their home and food source.

To protect your crops from spider mites, you must act quickly. Unchecked spider mite infestation can render your entire field of crops worthless in a short amount of time. Unfortunately, spider mites tend to be very difficult to kill, having built up a resistance to the many pesticides that have been used against them.

The Power of Horticultural Oils

You may find a great solution in the use of horticultural oils. The right horticultural oils are a sustainable, biological solution that can safely ward pests off your crops. Finding the right horticultural oil blend, of course, is the key.
