He currently works alongside Thomas Doron from Biobest, providing advice and supplying IPM products to professional gardeners and ornamental plant producers in the Pyrenean region of south-western France.
"My role is to advise small and medium producers of vegetables and ornamental plants, of which approximately 50% are organic," says Philippe. "I also work with seedlings producers and growers specialized in Espelette peppers, a regional specialty of the department. of the Atlantic Pyrenees ".
"While I have seen many Biobest innovations over the past two decades, the most memorable have certainly been Swirskii – System and Nutrimite. These products have allowed me to solve serious thrips problems in peppers and cucumbers, as well as poinsettias, cyclamen and chrysanthemums. Using Nutrimite to provide supplemental food to the Swirskii-System is ideal for supporting early and long-lasting establishment of mite populations. "
"Over the last 20 years I have forged a close working relationship with Biobest; like all good long-term relationships, it has a solid foundation based on trust," says Philippe.
