Since one year we are doing big trials, on two hectares, with Integrated Pest management. As Wagagai we are working closely with our partners to see how far we can go to integrate this innovative and vey sustainable way of growing, into our production systems.
IPM emphasizes the growth of a healthy crop with the least possible disruption to agro-ecosystems and encourages natural pest control mechanisms. The more we can incorporate IPM into our production systems the less we have to make use of traditional chemicals. The first results are looking positive and we hope over the years that we can expand the area under IPM control.
MPS SQ and GAP-certified
Wagagai is already MPS-A certified for many year both SQ (Socially Qualified) and GAP. This means that we comply with all the European rules that are compulsory by this label. All detailed information on MPS can be found at www.my-mps.com
