This year, Russell IPM's Head of Research & Development, Dr Nayem Hassan was invited by CIHEAM Bari, Italy to teach between 28 November-2 December 2016 a short course on Integrated Pest Management of Citrus crop. The lectures focused on plant protection and attracted inspectors from the Food Provincial Directorate of Antalya (Turkey) whose specialty is integrated protection techniques for citrus. The interest in Russell IPM's traps with incorporated pheromones of Meditteranean fruitfly and Tuta absoluta were an absolute hit with the Turkish delegates. Our solutions were well-received by the representatives, who have expressed interest in testing them on Turkish soil in 2017.
