IPM – Integrated Pest Management

Our obsession with quality can be seen in the IPM process, which combines many pest control methods to control disease and insect pests instead of the farmer’s traditional reliance on routine pesticide applications. At Giorgio, we use pesticides only when absolutely necessary. We limit the amount of chemicals applied by using other, non-chemical and natural pest control techniques to reduce pest damage. These steps include shortening crop cycles, pest exclusion, sound growing practices that produce healthy, disease-resistant crops, and strict farm sanitation. Furthermore, we implement the latest research to win the battle against pests.

This is one mushroom that’s making a difference.

At Giorgio, we limit the amount of pesticide use by using other, non-chemical and natural pest-control techniques to reduce pest damage. These steps include shortening crop cycles, pest exclusion, biological controls, strict farm sanitation, and sound growing practices that produce healthy, disease-resistant crops. Our natural biological controls are derived from nature’s own pest-resistant compounds and are quite friendly to the environment. What’s more, our employees participate in ongoing training to ensure proper implementation of our IPM program.

Giorgio is certified in IPM implementation by the Pennsylvania State University and the University of Delaware, both world leaders in IPM research. We are proud at Giorgio to have received a commendation from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for environmental friendliness.
