How we beat whitefly

Whitefly has been a problem for Richard this year. And the loses have been mounting.

However this did give Richard the chance to test out methods for tackling whitefly that sit with Richards ideology. The methods richard used that worked are

  • Grazers g3 but this needs to be used before whitefly appears
  • Natural predators such as lady birds
  • A jet of water to blow of the whitefly
  • Horticultural soap

and now the whitefly is reduced.

And the winner is.

This month we launched a competition called name that chicken. There was lots of entries but there could only be one winner.

And the winning name is Heggwig.

Congratulations to the winner.
