Jolanda Wijsmuller:

"Biological products won’t replace conventional crop protection"

"They’re rather a complement to Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs. Farmers need a lot of knowledge on how to apply and implement biological products in their spraying schedule. Of course, Food Chain Managers don’t leave the growers alone with this challenge. We offer training to farmers and our crop advisors are always just a call away for advice."
