Crop Protection Crop Protection

Integrated Pest management can be defined according to the following definition that is described by the USDA:

Agricultural Research Service
"Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools in a way that minimizes economic, health and environmental risks."

This is exactly the approach that InteliGro follows to help growers with long-term sustainable crop solutions.

The IPM approach is built on three main areas of expertise with specific underlying areas:

  1. It begins with a good knowledge of the specific crop involved and the challenges, plant physiology, plant biological and production aspects important to the crop.
    This also include an understanding of the specific cultivars, seed varieties, rootstocks, and its specific susceptibility to certain pests.
  2. In addition to the crop knowledge, the knowledge of the pests (weeds, insects, diseases, nematodes) and the potential economic impact is an important focus area.
    This also includes monitoring techniques and assisting growers with monitoring practices. With the right monitoring information, better decisions can be made with regards to if action needs to be taken and if need, what is the right solution for the specific situation.
  3. Thirdly, InteliGro has a good knowledge of the available crop protection solutions that include, chemical, biological and cultural options management options.
    InteliGro is proud to be associated with reputable crop protection suppliers that include multi-national and generic crop protection suppliers as well as dedicated biological suppliers.
