A new dissemination action of LIFE-BIODELEAR took place in Cyprus on 15th and 16th of October 2018 with the organization of 2-day workshop.
On Tuesday the 16th of October 2018 (the second day of the trip) the research team of the project visited the most important citrus farm in Cyprus, in the Akrotiri region, covering an area of 5000 acres of cultivations.

In particular, the visit was to Red Seal Quality Company, founded in 1993, the largest company in Cyprus in the cultivation, production, packaging and marketing of citrus fruit. The varieties cultivated by the company are: Grapefruits (Marsh Seedless, Star Ruby), Oranges (Valencia, Powell Navel, Lane Late, Navelina, Chislett), mandarins (Mandora, Nova, Clemenules, Orogrande). Its annual citrus production exceeds 13000 tons.


The research team of LIFE-BIODELEAR visited the premises of the company and met its agronomist / technical manager and production manager, Mr Andrea Kontzionis. Mr Kontzionis was kindly offered to show us the citrus farm and the packaging section of the company. Under the framework of a fruitful discussion regarding the damage that Med fly (and other pests) cause in citrus production in Cyprus, the scientists of LIFE-BIODELEAR presented the strategy of the project and explain the suspension and maintenance of our traps in the field.

Mr. Kontzionis showed great interest in the attractive Biodelear and expressed his willing in using it and see its results on the company's farms in Cyprus.
