Growers are avidly looking at biocontrols, biorationals and biopesticides as an alternative to harsher chemicals that are fast becoming ineffective and often unavailable. Additionally, there is a strong stigma against many systemic treatments and their effects on pollinators.

Implementation is a method, one that demands a different mindset, attitude, and expectation for growers, retailers and consumers, and takes some time and diligence and commitment to make it work.
