By combining tradition, experience and commitment to innovation, we’ve become a world leader in biological pest control:
- We opt for biological pest control, using auxiliary fauna on more than 80% of greenhouse crops, and even exceeding 99% on crops such as red pepper.
- This means that an army of tiny spiders, bed bugs, lacewings, wasps and up to 30 billion beneficial bugs live in the greenhouses, controlling pests so they don’t harm the plants.
- We also have other defences such as double doors, anti-insect netting, and chromatic attraction and pheromone traps to catch pests.
Another technique we employ is the use of insects, such as bumblebees, to ensure that flowers are pollinated and to produce the best fruit and vegetables in Europe. We use natural, sustainable and environmentally-friendly techniques, which not only reduce the use of pesticides, but also promote the gradual ecological transformation of our production.
