Pest Control Management and Chillies

  • Chillies are very susceptible to attack by a variety of pests which can reduce their yield, safety and/or quality making the management and control of pests at every step of the supply chain critical.
  • During cultivation and storage chillies can be attacked by birds, rodents and insects so a variety of interventions are required.
