OHP Enters Biocontrols Market With New Product Line
In an effort to better serve the greenhouse and nursery market, including vegetable and herb production, OHP has introduced a new “OHP Biosolutions” program.
The new line from OHP will feature products that are specifically designed to address the expanding segment of growers who utilize biological products exclusively or in combination with conventional products.
“We see the steady evolution of our industry from one where conventional products were dominant to one where growers are using all available options,” says Dan Stahl, OHP Vice President and General Manager.
“Our motto has been ‘OHP, your partner with solutions.’ Now, with biosolutions, we’ve broadened our approach to include non-conventional products for the diversity of growers we see today,” Stahl says.
OHP will soon add insecticides, fungicides, and specialty products that are mostly compatible with vegetable crops and herbs grown in media or in hydroponic situations.
The upcoming biosolutions products from OHP, mainly comprised of reduced risk products, will be compatible with beneficial insects and pollinators. Most of the products will also be compatible with organic production.
Many of the new products will carry short restricted entry intervals of four hours and require minimal personal protective equipment.
