Bernd Tönneßen – Organic grower

The organic grower Bernd Tönneßen (member of the Bioland association) in Bornheim, Germany, used VerdaProtect in 2011 in a tunnel culture of sweet pepper. During the entire crop season (April through September) and even at temperatures reaching 42 °C, all occuring aphids were reliably controlled.

A comparative strategy with commonly used beneficials was equally able to control the aphid populations, the deployment required however a substantially higher expenditure on labor (installation and crop monitoring).

Retrospectively on the season Mr. Tönneßen says: „VerdaProtect is the means of choice, it is easy and fast in application, my crop is well armed against aphids, and I have to invest less – in terms of money and time. Without any doubt, I will use this concept in the future for the protection of my crops.”
