Bumblebee pollination in strawberries

Most strawberry varieties are self-fertile, yet insect pollination is important to obtain high yield and optimal quality. Growers producing strawberries under protective cover are generally well-aware of the benefit of using bumblebeesEven in open field production, relying on natural population of insect pollinators is often insufficient and the use of bumblebees is of great value. 

Using bumblebees in your strawberry crop has many advantages: 

  1. larger fruit size

  2. better quality

  3. higher yield

Biological control in strawberry

Use biological control to ensure a vigorous and healthy crop and to cut back on harmful and persistent pesticides. Pests develop resistance to pesticides: a vicious circle leading to even more chemicals yet poorer pest control. Biocontrol helps you to break this circle. 

Using biocontrol as your first line of defense in Integrated Pest Management has many advantages:

  • good yield and high quality

  • a safe working place for your employees

  • preserve nature

  • residue-free production

Retailers and consumers demand for safe fruits produced in a sustainable way. Therefore, good IPM practice is also an essential marketing tool.
