Integrated Pest Management

Planning for pest control will ensure a safe growing environment for crops.

A localized fungus can be easily dealt with, but an infestation of aphids can destroy a hydroponic business. An Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan takes many aspects into consideration, including an assessment of the threat through observation, biological control and habitat management. Once identified, a decision about treatment can be made.

Hydroponic pest control needs will vary, as craft producers might be best served by prevention measures like cleaners, fungicides or insecticides. When dealing with pests in an immense smart greenhouse, you may need to look into a series of foggers and sprayers.
