Q.Organic Pest Control

Zone SE ASIA | treanna added on May 29, 2015 | Answered

We are looking to test and possibly sell your product in SE Asia. Do you currently have representation in SE Asia? If not, we would like you to consider us for an exclusive contract for SE Asia. Are you able to answer these questions?

1. In Vietnam, it rains a lot. When we use your pesticide, does it was off during each rain? Will it need to be re-applied every time it rains? From what we know, they have been using soap in order to keep the pesticide on the leaves. How would your product work in situations like this?
2. Tea Trees (Vietnam) – The problem with tea trees is that the pests typically start at the root. Could/should it be applied at the root? How do you deal with root pest issues? How would we apply your product?
3. Rice (Vietnam) – Rice fields are grown in water. Will the liquid harm the rice? Please explain how your product will work in rice fields.

Rain is a big issue in SE Asia, as it is almost a daily event needs to be addressed for re-applying water-based substances such as the pesticides. Tea and tea root issues are from our partner and our biggest customer. Rice is becoming a huge part of our customer base for fertilizer so applications here also critical for real scaled growth. Rice has the potential for biggest use but protecting tea is top priority.

Anxiously awaiting your response.

The organic pest control recipes on our website are foliar sprays only. Re-application would be necessary after a rain. As for harm to rice, I would suggest that you test it out on a small portion of the plant first to make sure that it will not harm the plant before using the organic pest control in a large-scale operation.
