The close-up visual material shows how pests develop in the crop and how natural enemies combat them. Koppert is capturing visuals of the pests which growers have to deal with on a daily basis and show how their natural enemies do their work.
The new videos are aimed at growers, agricultural consultants, academic institutions and those interested in sustainable solutions for the production of food and flowers.
Koppert said it wants to create greater awareness of the natural solutions which are available for horticulture, so that the use of chemical agents is not always necessary.
A total of 23 videos are in the making and will feature pests such as, whitefly, spider mite, aphids, thrips, mealybugs, leaf miners, black vine weevil and Tuta absoluta.
The videos of whitefly and a number of predatory insects are now available: whitefly life cycle, macrolophus pygmaeus, encarsia formosa and amblyseius swirskii.
The rest will be released in the coming weeks and will be added to Koppert’s Youtube channel and Vimeo account.
