Meet Greenlife in the Netherlands

Next week, the global floriculture will gather in the Netherlands for the FloraHolland Trade fair and IFTF. Also Kenyan company Greenlife comes to the Netherlands to present and showcase its top range products that are currently creating good progress as crop protection agents within the East African floriculture industry. Commercial Director Edward Agg-Manning, will be visiting both shows to meet African growers and present Greenlife's five key products.

"The floriculture industry in Kenya is thriving and continues to grow rapidly. The professionalism of agribusinesses has had to dynamically move to meet the needs of the fast changing industry. Biologicals have become a major element to the business and as such Greenlife has low phytotoxity products within its range."

Agg-Manning will visit FloraHolland Trade Fair in Aalsmeer and the IFTF in Vijfhuizen next week and will present these five key products of Greenlife;

  • Alonze 50 EC: for control of spider mites, leafminers and thrips in Roses and Carnations

  • Absolute 375SC: a broad-spectrum fungicide that is a tri AI product which will definitely come in handy in protection strategies against downy and powdery mildews.

  • Epitome Elite 500 SP: an enhanced fast control contact and stomach action insecticide which controls a broad spectrum of insects on roses

  • Taurus 500 SP: a novel insecticide that is absorbed into foliage and roots and is translocated acropetally in the plant. It is effective against, thrips, white flies, and aphids in roses

  • Lexus 247SC: a broad-spectrum insecticide effective against aphids, thrips, and whiteflies, on a wide range of crops including roses.
"As we continue to strive to find crop sensitive and quality ready solutions for the future, I am looking forward to meeting respective partners", says Agg-Manning.
