In preparation for the Biocontrols Africa Conference & Expo 2017, 12-13 July in Cape Town, AgriBusiness Global visited numerous key players in the market, including grower Richard Hutton-Squire. Squire is Technical Director for Hutton-Squire Farms PTY Ltd, located in Elgin (Western Cape) South Africa.
Hutton-Squire has successfully implemented biocontrol products into his integrated pest management (IPM) program.
According to Hutton-Squire, MRLs (maximum residue levels), diagnosing issues early, and understanding how and when to apply biocontrol products are allmajor issues he and all growers face when implementing a successful IPM program.
When you attend Biocontrols Africa 2017 in Cape Town, you’ll meet and network with growers like Hutton-Squire who are using biocontrols, as they present case studies from crops on comprehensive biocontrol programs, successes, challenges, and what products they need next from the industry.
This exciting premiere conference in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa is organized by Meister Media Worldwide and AgriBusiness Global in collaboration with the South African Bioproducts Organisation (SABO).
