A sustainable pest management program protects you, your orchard and your environment

Staying on top of pest problems is critical to protect the quality and yield of your current crop in years to come. A good pest management program also helps prevent potential food safety issues while preventing crop inputs from becoming environmental issues.

To ensure your pest management program is environmentally responsible:

  • Monitor both pest and beneficial insects and mites and spray only when treatments are necessary.
  • Do not treat for pests as long as populations remain below economic thresholds.
  • Use effective, environmentally friendly and less toxic materials whenever possible.
  • Use cultural and biological controls rather than pesticides whenever possible.
  • Avoid broad-spectrum insecticides unless pests exceed treatment thresholds and effective environmentally friendly insecticides are not available.
