Integrated Crop Management

Integrated Crop Management (ICM), of which Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a part, is fast becoming a required strategy for production in most crops, including those in the arable sector. The pressure to adopt ICM strategies has come from a number of directions, including consumers and food retailers, and IPM featured as a requirement for future product registration in the revision of the European Plant Protection Regulation.

Growers are also increasingly aware of the need to steward the environment and a sustainable approach to crop production is a key factor in their decision-making. Certis products fit well within many IPM systems, not only in protected crops but also in top fruit and vegetables where products such as Bt insecticides and Cyd-X, a virus product that controls Codling Moth in apples, can help growers achieve high quality standards and manage residue levels of conventional chemicals.
