Koppert introduces sustainable solution for date palm pest at the GFIA Abu Dhabi

A leader in biological pest control solutions, pollination, soil stimulants and seed enhancement, Koppert Biological Systems will be attending the GFIA to offer sustainable solutions to farmers in the Gulf Region on 20 and 21 March.

Focus on Date Palms
Date palms are one of the most important crops in the Middle East and three pest management companies have combined their forces to tackle the Red Palm Weevil (RPW) head-on. Koppert Biological Systems, TEC-IB and ICSA Technologies are working together to offer farmers in the Gulf region and beyond a highly effective package that focuses on the intensive control of this major pest.

Koppert has established a partnership together with TEC-IB (remote sensing solutions) and ISCA Technologies (environmentally friendly, natural and pheromone based tools and solutions) and will now be able to offer a complete control system against Red Palm Weevil.

‘This intensified approach to what is a significant problem for date palm farmers, has never before been this focused,’ says Koppert’s Export Manager MEA & India, Yassin Lahiani. ‘We now have three reputable biological pest control companies working together on one major pest, so the results should be impressive.’

Special 50th anniversary stand
This is the fourth year that Koppert will be attending the GFIA and a special stand has been planned for the fair to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary year. Koppert regional managers will also share their integrated pest control management expertise at two presentations during the fair.

On 20 March at 12.00 p.m., Business Unit manager Middle East & Africa, Yosef Ouhlous, will talk about ‘Red Palm Weevil Control, As Never Seen Before’. 

You can visit Koppert Biological Systems at booth D105 during the GFIA.
