US: Pleasant View Gardens no longer uses neonicotinoid insecticides in its liners

Pleasant View Gardens will no longer be using neonicotinoid
insecticides in its liner production.

“While data is conflicting as to neonicotinoids’ impact, we are sensitive to consumer awareness of their use,” says Henry Huntington, president. “We were actually using so few neonicotinoids in our production that the decision required very little change.”

With an integrated IPM and scouting program in place, Pleasant View will be able to effectively keep any insect population under control using traditional practices. Additional existing efforts including the use of beneficial insects in ornamental grass production also go toward effective controls.

“This is something we’re happy to do for our customers, to help them appeal to their customers,” says Henry.
