Why you should plan and forecast to prevent greenhouse biocontrol supply shortages
from Greenhouse Grower
Growers who work with biological control agents (BCAs) know that starting early in the production process and planning ahead are important ingredients for a successful program. In April 2010, the eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano disrupted air traffic in Europe and transatlantic flights to North America for weeks. Growers who were implementing biocontrol in North America in 2010 might remember this event because of the supply interruption of BCAs.
