With a strong focus on protected crops - the Biobest’s French team, and Symbiose, at the SIVAL trade show

8 February 2019
With a strong focus on protected crops, SIVAL attracted over 630 exhibitors and 24,000 visitors from the horticultural and specialty crop sectors. This year’s Biobest stand highlighted the powerful osmoregulator Bluestim®, our award-winning ASPERELLO™ T34 Biocontrol® biofungicide as well as our whitefly insecticide PreFeRal®.
The team also registered high levels of interest in the new improved Bug-Scan® sticky traps, which feature a new integrated hanging system making them simpler and faster to use.
Hanging sticky traps in a crop can prove labour-intensive. Responding to grower needs, Biobest has incorporated a quick and easy hanging system in to its popular Bug-Scan® sticky traps.
With an integrated hanging system, the traps can now be efficiency hung up using strips or directly suspended on the crop wire, saving valuable time.
