How do we maintain a 100% pesticide-free farm in the midst of a busy farming area?
At Tulima, we have implemented an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach, which includes introducing natural predators to our greenhouses. And who are these little helpers, you ask?
Meet the ladybugs These amazing natural predators feed on a variety of pests that can damage crops, such as aphids, scale insects, mealybugs, spider mites, and whiteflies. By working with nature and implementing sustainable practices like this, we're not only keeping our produce healthy but also contributing to a healthier environment.
