Pest control and Pollination

Some regions are currently experiencing an infestation of Meditteranean fruit flies, which poses a risk to the fig trees. Farmers are actively addressing the issue with regular monitoring and safe insecticides to ensure the health of the trees.

Ensuring maximum efficiency and effectiveness is key to a successful and robust crop that meets international quality standards.
