At Biobest they are constantly looking at ways to make their packaging more sustainable. Reducing reliance on plastic is a key focus. With this in mind, their team has redesigned the packaging for the Biobest bulk Amblyseius-System replacing plastic buckets with specially designed eco-friendly paper bags.
Amblyseius cucumeris is a predatory mite widely used to control thrips larvae and spider mites. Highly mobile, this predatory mite can survive on pollen in the absence of prey. With the bulk-Amblyseius-System, growers can make preventative introductions in pollen bearing crops.
This latest development replaces the plastic 5L buckets, previously used for the 125K, 250K and 500K bulk Amyblseius-Systems. It delivers the same predatory efficacy. The new packaging will be available from 3 December 2018.
