Pleasant View Gardens will no longer be using neonicotinoid insecticides in its liner production.
“While data is conflicting as to neonicotinoids’ impact, we are sensitive to consumer awareness of their use,” says Henry Huntington, president. “We were actually using so few neonicotinoids in our production that the decision required very little change.”
With an integrated IPM and scouting program in place, Pleasant View will be able to effectively keep any insect population under control using traditional practices. In addition, beneficial insects will be used in ornamental grass production.
“This is something we’re happy to do for our customers, to help them appeal to their customers,” Huntington says.
