A Kiwi Original - Gerwyn Jones - Pelgar International - Episode 91
Why does a British insecticide company want to manufacture a natural insecticide with New Zealand ingredients in the Hawkes Bay? New Zealand natural chrysanthemum (pyrethrum).
We talk with Gerwyn Jones, a pest control veteran, who got in contact with a talented Hawkes Bay grower of natural pyrethrum. From this partnership started Pelgar's New Zealand Made Product, PyGar Natural Insecticide. This product meets the demand of food producers who want a more natural alternative to the synthetic insecticides in use now.
