Why insectary habitats are key in organic agriculture

A discussion with Gina Bella Colfer, key account manager for organic agriculture at Wilbur Ellis, about conservation biological control, the use of beneficial insects in vegetable crops, and the promotion of soil health.

Resilient farming in avocado and citrus orchards

A discussion with Chris Sayer, manager of Petty Ranch, a lemon and avocado farm in Ventura, California, about cover cropping, integrated pest management, biocontrol and climate change.

“The lack of incentives for adopting IPM is probably the strongest barrier” – Surendra Dara of the UC Cooperative Extension

A discussion about some of the advantages of IPM, the current lack of incentives for its adoption, the difference between IPM and organic practices as well as the need for better field scouting and education.

A discussion about biocontrol in outdoor cropping systems with Chrissie Davis, of Koppert Biological Systems, Inc.

We had a very interesting conversation with Chrissie Davis, the national account manager of Koppert USA’s outdoor agriculture team. Koppert Biological Systems is the worldwide leader producing beneficial organisms, microbials, macro-organisms, and pollinators.

Digital Integrated Pest Management: A Conversation with Farm Dog’s Founder and CEO

We had a great conversation with Liron Brish, Farm Dog’s CEO, during which we discussed his vision of what he calls “Digital Integrated Pest Management, or Digital IPM” for short.

As School Starts Up, Here’s a Quick Refresher on Economic Threshold Levels

Instead of waiting for pest populations to reach the level at which the cost of treatment equals the cost of lost yield (known as the Economic Injury Level or EIL), ETLs incorporate growth models as well as the time it takes for treatments to take effect to calculate action points.

How California Avocado Growers Keep Persea Mites from Ruining the Super Bowl

A tiny arthropod called Persea mite (Oligonychus perseae) loves avocados so much that it feeds on their leaves in 99% of California’s avocado orchards, with coastal areas being particularly popular spots for them, because who doesn’t like dining with a view of the Pacific?

UAV-IQ & Koppert Introduce a New Aerial Biocontrol Service

In partnership with Koppert Biological Systems, the world leader in biological pest management, UAV-IQ announces the initiation of an agricultural pest management service utilizing drones to efficiently release beneficial insects and mites.

UAV-IQ Honored as a Startup World Champion for Startupfest

UAV-IQ was invited to tell its story Startupfest 2019, one of Montreal’s world-renowned summer festivals. It was great to see other agriculture-focused startups doing great things and earning recognition at an event focused on celebrating and fostering entrepreneurship. It was an honor for us to be named a champion of the event’s Startup World Championships 2019, a competition that attracts companies from around the world.

Economic Decision Making in IPM (Part 1)

While Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a blend of art and science where experience and rules of thumb are relied upon heavily, a quality IPM plan can be fine-tuned to meet the specific agro-economic needs of individual farms.

How to control mealybugs in your vineyard (Part 2)

Some predators and parasitoids have proven to be very efficient at controlling mealybugs.

How to monitor mealybugs in your vineyard (Part 1)

99% of the US’s grape is produced in California because of its favorable conditions, but the nice weather and moderate winter in the Golden State is particularly attractive to mealybugs.

Aliens (aka Parasitoids) versus Predators

There are currently hundreds of biological control agents commercially available. In this article, we explore the pros and cons of using parasitoids versus predators.

How To Control Two-Spotted Spider Mites In Strawberry Production

The two-spotted spider mite usually causes the majority of its damage early in the season, so special field scouting effort needs to be implemented from February to June in California and even into August in some locations (Santa Maria), December to April in Florida.

Using Conservation Control To Aid Your Pests’ Enemies

Conservation biological control (CBC) be summarized as the set of practices that aim to ensure that natural enemies have a suitable habitat capable of supporting their populations at required levels.

Augmentative Biocontrol, An Efficient Pest Management Solution.

The technique of bolstering existing beneficial populations with mass-reared insects is referred to as augmentative biocontrol and presents many advantages compared to the use of chemical applications.

Discovering The Classical Biological Control Approach

In this article, we will take a focused look at classical (or importation) biological control, which along with augmentative and conservation control is one of three primary disciplines of biocontrol.

An Introduction To The World Of Natural Enemies

Biocontrol is not a new concept. Ancient Egyptians used domestic cats to control the rodent populations that threatened their grain supplies, ancient Chinese citrus growers moved predaceous ant nests into their citrus fields…

The Future Of AgTech At The Viva Technology Trade Show In Paris

UAV-IQ Was Invited To Participate In The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region “Lab” At The Viva Technology 2018 Trade Show In Paris.

Winemaking And Innovation At SITEVI 2017

Another powerful way in which savvy vineyard managers and winemakers are unlocking remote sensing’s potential value: selective harvest.

Remote Sensing: Powerful Technology, But Not An End To Manual Field Surveys

Remote sensing is one of the considerable advances in farming of the past 20 years. But once you have your imagery in hands, what are the next steps?

Selective Harvest: Improve Your Bottom Line With Remote Sensing
