Lumion for strawberries

Crop protection > Done. 

Octiva is the leader in UV-C treatment for powdery mildew control in strawberries production and propagation. Ultraviolet-C (in short: UV-C)  radiation is proven efficient in reducing the development of diseases in crops such as strawberries. Several studies confirm effectiveness of its disinfecting effect, and even describe that it might stimulate plant defenses and increase shelf life. A clear advantage for growers that are concerned with residue reduction and quality of their produce.

How it works

  • UV-C treatment for full control of powdery mildew, leaving up to 51% less residue on the fruits
  • Makes the plant more resistant to pests and diseases in general
  • UV-C also helps in controlling other diseases and pests including Erwinia and Xanthomonas
  • Treatment can be done at the most ideal time for the plant: at night
  • No risk for humans, because treatment happens fully autonomously without any human nearby
  • No negative impact on the plant, the fruit or the biology (beneficials)
  • Lamps are automatically switched on and off when in the central aisle
