Over the next three months Louise Labuschagne, Joint MD of Real IPM Kenya, will be attempting a world record. You are invited to watch the progress of her attempt to produce #ZeroResidue roses and later tomatoes, on the Equator, where there are all year round growing conditions for pests and diseases – WITHOUT having to rely on chemical pesticides. She will be bringing all the Real IPM biological control agents to bear on this formidable task. Will she win – or will she lose? The rose greenhouse chosen for the attempt has been previously used for efficacy trials for chemical pesticides – so it has even had pests and diseases applied to the plants. As a result – the crop is very badly damaged and has high levels of pests and diseases. The variety, Upper Class, is a beautiful rose but is susceptible to pests and diseases. This is a very difficult scenario – but she is confident of success. Join us on Facebook and share her successes and failures. Give us your advice as she struggles to keep pace with the pests and diseases. How would you solve this problem biologically?
