Suterra Marks Twenty-fifth Anniversary of Puffer®
Puffer, the aerosol pheromone emitter that revolutionized the agriculture industry with a non-toxic pesticide alternative, celebrates a quarter century of sustainable pest control
Puffer® NOW Ace controls navel orangeworm in pistachios, almonds, walnuts, figs, and other crops. As part of the world's most popular aerosol mating disruption product line, it is Suterra's most popular aerosol product in California, America's most productive agricultural state.
In a season when almost every crop protection input cost is increasing, introducing a cost reduction is a welcome surprise to California growers. Carlos Bassa, Director of North America for Suterra, explains: "We want to thank our loyal customers for their business and their shared commitment to sustainability. Overall, with our low rate of one Puffer® per acre, per season, we have helped the agriculture industry reduce pesticide use by millions of gallons and we are very proud of that."
Each Puffer® deployed in California comes with The Clean Orchard Promise®, whereby no materials remain in the field. Suterra takes back used Puffer® units and recycles all e-waste, plastic, and metals separately and responsibly.
Puffer® NOW Ace is one of many patented aerosol mating disruption devices under the Puffer® brand, each targeted to control specific pests. For more information, please visit Suterra.com/
