WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND?
I had been gardening for years. Then our family decided to make a living growing hemp and healthy food for our community. We’ve produced hemp and vegetables on multiple acres and in greenhouses. We currently run a 46 acre family farm.
WHAT DO YOU GROW?
Hemp, Melons, Pumpkins, Tomatoes, Peppers, Leafy Greens.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN USING TRIFECTA CROP CONTROL?
Since 2015-ish, I believe… A long time!
WHAT PROBLEM WHERE YOU TRYING TO SOLVE WHEN YOU BEGAN USING TRIFECTA CROP CONTROL?
I first met the Trifecta crew at the Endo Expo. We were battling aphids in our hemp greenhouses and I was seeking a solution at the expo. We constantly battled aphids due to our farms location next to a peach orchard. Powdery mildew on cucumbers and melons, too.
WHAT OTHER SOLUTIONS DID YOU CONSIDER?
Citric Acid Products
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TRIFECTA CROP CONTROL?
Our decision for Trifecta was based upon having a solution that was closer to natural. We liked the food grade oils. We didn’t want to put synthetic chemicals on our crops.
WHAT RESERVATIONS DID YOU HAVE?
Same as with the first time use of any product but the main concern was the isopropyl alcohol.
HOW DID USING TRIFECTA CROP CONTROL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM? WHAT MEASURABLE BENEFITS HAVE YOU SEEN?
Trifecta is the front line for my IPM. Its stellar performance in all applications have been a huge benefit to our farm. The control of mold, mildew, and soft bodied insects all in one product helps to keep things simple. Trifecta as part of your IPM keeps things that way. Life is complicated enough on a farm.
WHAT EQUIPMENT IS USED IN THE APPLICATION OF TRIFECTA CROP CONTROL?
Atomizer mostly in houses
Backpack sprayers in fields
HOW OFTEN TO YOU APPLY THE PRODUCT?
2x -3x weekly depending on time of year and any arising issues.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT THE PRODUCT?
Ease of use, effective, and it’s not chemical based.
