Ulti-Mite Swirski nominated for Fruit Logistica Innovation Award

The new industrial compostable sachet Ulti-Mite Swirski has been nominated for the Fruit Logistica Innovation Award 2018.

Ulti-Mite Swirski, the new breeding sachet for the predatory mite Amblyseius swirskii, offers a more effective way to biologically fight thrips and whiteflies. Resistant against drought and moisture, the Ulti-Mite Swirski cultivation system enables more stable biological pest control. In suboptimal conditions, the new system outperforms comparable products based on the predatory mite Amblyseius swirskii. These mites are used by farmers of a.o. peppers, strawberries, and other crops. The innovation (patent pending) makes the predatory mite available for a broader spectrum of cultures, including melons and citrus fruit. The bags are made from a newly developed film and can be industrially composted which means they can be combined with plant waste for disposal at a composting plant.

Presentation at Fruit Logistica
The ten innovations selected will be presented from 7 to 9 February 2018 in a special exhibition between Halls 20 and 21 (north side) and in hall B City Cube (south side). The foyer between halls 20 and 21 is where the winner will be announced on 9 February 2018 at 14:30.

More than 70,000 trade visitors from over 130 countries can cast their vote on 7 and 8 February 2018 for the innovation of the year. A panel of experts consisting of representatives from all levels of the fresh produce trade has selected ten nominees from over 60 submissions.
