Suterra announces partnership with Phytech

Share this article

Suterra has entered into a new partnership agreement with Phytech. The agreement adds Suterra’s Puffer aerosol pheromone mating disruption products to Phytech’s digital farming platform with integrated plant health and irrigation Internet of Things (IoT) monitor and control service.

Suterra states the partnership delivers a comprehensive solution to help growers optimize irrigation, nutrition and pest control.

Puffer aerosol mating disruption reduces the population of economically damaging pests including navel orangeworm, codling moth and oriental fruit moth. These pests are especially problematic for permanent orchard crops such as almonds, pistachios, peaches, nectarines, apricots, apples, pears, walnuts, figs and pomegranates.
“This new product-focused partnership with Phytech is built to ensure we encourage further adoption of mating disruption in a way that will meet the needs of the growers as they advance their operation towards a more digital future,” said Carlos Bassa, senior director and head of North America at Suterra.
In addition to adding pest control, Phytech is expanding its platform features to include granular climate monitoring of temperature and humidity per block. “This is a natural step in realizing our vision to bring growers the most complete and cost-effective platform to help them manage and optimize their farm horticulture,” said Oren Kind, chief commercial officer and Phytech U.S. general manager.
Suterra is grower-owned and part of The Wonderful Company, which Suterra describes as an international agribusiness and consumer products company with over 180,000 acres of nuts, vines, citrus and fruit crops.
