Sticky traps are a valuable aid in monitoring crops to detect early pest invasions, or to demonstrate property freedom of flying insects. Sticky traps record and highlight the activity of these flying insect pests.
Hygiene procedures are paramount for the control of plant pests, pathogens and weeds in any production nursery, greenlife market and growing media manufacturer. Effective hygiene and disinfestation protocols must be developed for the successful control of biosecurity issues, in high risk production situations.

Knowing the pH and Electrical Conductivity or EC of your irrigation and drainage water can help you to grow better and more consistent crops. Testing procedures aren’t difficult and can be done at minimal cost. This video shows a process for carrying out a practical on-site pH and electrical conductivity test on water.
All vehicles entering the nursery production area can be a potential biosecurity risk. To mitigate this risk, entry should be restricted to all but essential vehicles. Any vehicle required to enter the nursery production area should be thoroughly inspected at a designated vehicle inspection point by following the BioSecure HACCP vehicle inspection procedure.
