Royal Brinkman introduces UniMite bio-distribution systems to Canadian market
September 27, 2023 By Greenhouse Canada
Royal Brinkman Canada’s latest UniMite bio-distribution system is coming to the Canadian market.
UniMite Air is a bio-blower system that uniformly spreads predatory mites over a width of 10 meters. This UniMite system can be used on a pipe rail or monorail system in many ornamental crops such as chrysanthemum, roses and more. The UniMite Slider is mounted on a pipe rail trolley and is ideal for use in cucumbers. One employee operates the UniMite Slider, which directs the bio spreader pipes above the crop, treating two rows of plants in one pass. With the UniMite Slider, biological material is placed in the middle of the top of the plants.
Bio-spreader technology is used to distribute natural enemies easily and uniformly throughout the crop. Proper distribution of bios ensures best results and a successful IPM program. Maximizing the number of natural enemies and getting them in the right place to do their pest control work is key. Bio dispersal can be done by hand but is extremely labor-intensive and less accurate.
The UniMite bio-distributor will be introduced
for the first time at the Canadian Greenhouse Conference, October 4-5, 2023 in Niagara Falls.
