Earlier today, I was so incredibly proud to hand out six new Flamingo Horticulture Long Service Awards to members of the Dudutech team, for a total of 70 years of dedicated service. These new inductees are a perfect example of why we strive to build a working environment with a culture which develops careers rather than jobs. At seven years in Dudutech/Flamingo I am a little way off still but I look forward to receiving my own 10-year long service award in 2023.

Long Service Awards went to:


Peninah Muthoni – 10 years

Jabez Odhiambo – 10 years

Stephen Kioni Kioni – 10 years

Constance Muholo – 10 years

Denis Naibei – 15 years

Rearing biologicals is one thing – getting them around the world, alive and ready to feast, is a whole other challenge. In recent years, a significant amount of R&D focus at Dudutech has been on understanding this challenge and meeting it through innovations in quality control, cold-chain management and packaging specs. The result is consistent delivery anywhere in the world within 48 hours, without compromising the performance of the biologicals.

At Dudutech, it all starts with the people. Over 350 employees have been trained and integrated into the Dudutech family, among them doctoral and post-grad scientists, each with their own place and purpose. The team leans on their extensive collective experience to guarantee optimum product quality at every stage, from R&D to delivery on the crop.

Following harvest, Jack Adundo – Technical Manager – and his dedicated QC (Quality Control) scientists vigorously check each batch on a microscopic level. By building the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System into our tried and tested Standard Operating Procedures, we ensure only products of the highest degree of quality make it to the customer’s crops. These safeguards are further buffered by pre-pack and after-pack sampling of each batch to aid quick troubleshooting and provide feedback into our continuous improvement program.

From there, their journey around the world begins. Eric Langat, who is at the head of the team at the Packhouse and Logistics Centre, fulfils the orders and uses a dynamic logistics network to secure the earliest possible delivery times.

Each of the packaging standards is continuously trialled and the resulting innovations have had a significant impact on how we pack and move the orders. The most important recent improvements are the packaging re-use scheme, the volume each order occupies, maintenance of conditions in transit, improved ease of use and optimised performance on delivery. 

In particular, the packing standards for our mites range combine an improved bottle shape and bespoke Duduvent cap design with streamlined shipping materials to balance performance, efficiency and size in transit. Duduvent provides a unique solution to the challenge. It ensures the air inside the mite’s bottles is cool and fresh and provides end-users with a better way to spread the mites on the crop.

While the tickets are being booked, each order enters our bio-chain. This specially designed and digitally monitored cold-chain system can maintain transit conditions over great distances for up to 48 hours.

Our fleet of custom-designed delivery vehicles forms the backbone of our bio-chain network. These refrigerated trucks are used to distribute the orders from our Ladybird Farm in Naivasha directly to farmers in Kenya or to export customers via Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

We include digital data monitors in each shipment to gather data on humidity and temperature and this information is then carefully analysed and relayed back to the technical team for further improvement.

Beauveria bassiana: What about the bees?

The effect of Beauvitech on nature’s little helpers

By John Ogechah and Cory Smit


Beauveria bassiana is a well-known soil-dwelling entomopathogenic (insect-killing) fungus found all over the world. For more than 100 years, tons of B. bassiana spores (e.g. Beauvitech®) have been commercially produced and used for biological control of insect pests worldwide. Growers have come to rely on this clever biological action known as white muscardine disease as a major player in chemical-free pest control. 

Following increased interest in biocontrol of pest insects between 1980 and 1990, safety aspects were raised and discussed in great detail. Burges (1981) outlined the main principles and guidelines for testing the safety of insect pathogens and “that a pathogen should be registered as safe when there is reasonable evidence that it is so and in the absence of concrete evidence that it is not. A “no risk” situation does not exist, certainly not with chemical pesticides, and even with biological agents one cannot absolutely prove a negative.” 

The commercial use of entomopathogenic fungi and their products as mycoinsecticides (fungus-based insecticides), therefore, necessitates their registration based on certain safety guidelines. Beauveria bassiana is indeed registered in several countries and proof of safety to non-target organisms such as mammals, fish, amphibia, birds, pollinators etc is an important requirement before registration.

Still, the lingering question posed by farmers and indeed the greater society is “What about the bees?” In other words, how safe are mycoinsecticides and, specifically, Beauveria bassiana to these little helpers of nature?

There are numerous peer-reviewed papers on the effect of B. bassiana on honeybees and other beneficial organisms. Examples are presented in Table I below. Notable is the fact that most of the studies were done in the laboratory and only a few in the field. 

The vast majority of the studies done on bees conclude that despite the wide host range of B. bassiana, this fungus can be used with minimal impact on honeybees and other non-target organisms. Some experiments showed that B. Bassiana can be blown directly into hives to manage Varroa destructor mites (Acari: Varroidae) without a negative effect on the bee colonies (Miekle et al., 2008; Rodríguez et al. 2009). Another set of experiments looked at using honeybees to distribute B. bassiana spores directly to crop flowers and foliage (Almazra’awi et al. 2006). Similarly, no adverse effects on the bees were reported. 

In one case, however, Almazra’awi (2007) reports that B. bassiana strains caused high mortality in caged bees dusted with dry formulations of high concentrations (10⁸-10 CFUg-1). Interestingly, in the same paper (Almazra’awi, 2007), exposure of whole beehives under field conditions resulted in low mortality that was not different from the controls regardless of the isolate tested. This points to the difference between the physiological host range and the ecological host range (Hajek & Butler 2000). 

The physiological host range demonstrates the range of insect species that can be infected in the laboratory, while the ecological host range demonstrates which insects can be infected in nature or under field conditions. Non-target insects which are infected under laboratory conditions, may not necessarily be infected in nature (Zimmermann, 2007)

We conclude that despite the wide host range of B. bassiana, evidence to date suggests that this fungus can be used with minimal impact on non-target organisms, especially when isolate selection and spacio-temporal factors are taken into consideration. Our answer is unwavering: Beauveria bassiana (Beauvitech®) has no negative effect on honeybees (Apis mellifera) in normal field conditions. In fact, there are numerous examples of benefits B. bassiana can have with and for bees.

Thrips: Early Detection Is Key!

Posted by

Mastering monitoring tools for improved Thrips control.

By Festus Kilee, John Ogechah and Cory Smit

As more growers around the world face Thrips (Order: Thysanoptera) and the crop challenges they bring, information and understanding have never been more important. Unnoticed Thrips challenges pose a significant threat to growers as their populations can quickly balloon, impacting on crop production, quality and overall cost. In particular, when crops are destined for overseas markets which are typically sensitive to quality and have strict phytosanitary restrictions in place, ignoring this threat may result in significant financial losses when the crop fails to make it to market. Inversely, with Thrips monitoring data available, growers can run timely interventions and target hot-spots. Early detection then translates into reduced spray volumes and reduced crop losses. 

Fortunately, there are well-established methods of tracking and monitoring Thrips populations on crops. By regularly gathering Thrips data using sticky traps, pheromone lures and manual observation techniques, growers can get a head start and inform their control decisions, mitigate crop losses and save money.

Methods of early detection

Global crop protection research efforts have resulted in a number of monitoring tools and techniques being developed for use in a farm environment. In this article, we will cover scouting, traps and pheromone lures for Thrips (however, these techniques can be applied to a variety of other flying crop pests.)


Scouting uses visual inspections of the plants to note Thrips presence and pressure. A simple technique involves counting larvae by gently tapping a sample of the crop onto an A4-sized sheet of white paper, any Thrips which drop to the paper are then counted using a magnifying lens or loupe and recorded.

Sticky traps

Different insect pests are attracted to different colours (wavelengths of light), with yellow and blue so far proving most attractive to crop pests. For example, Western flower thrips (Frankliniella occidentalis) which are most common and difficult to control, particularly favour blue traps over yellow ones.


Fig. 1. Sticktech Blue mode of action.

The colour-tuned material on these traps attracts the pests to an adhesive covered surface, which they then stick to, becoming trapped. Researchers or growers, then collect the data from the traps by counting and identifying the Thrips and other insects caught. This data, when plotted over time, reveals the pest trends for the area in question.

Dudutech has a range of tools for early detection of flying stages:

  • Sticktech – uses blue or yellow sticky cards which are placed between 10 – 15 cm above the plant canopy.
  • Optiroll – uses blue or yellow sticky rolls which are hung between poles and positioned 10 – 15 cm above the plant canopy.


These are synthetic chemical signals which mimic natural insect pheromones to attract the target to a trap. Since these are based on nature, these pheromone lures are species-specific. However, there are a wide variety of pheromone lures available for a number of important crop pests.

What other benefits?

Beyond the scope of pure observation, these sticky traps are also a valuable part of successful IPM practices. When researchers (Kirk and Sampson, 2013) looked at the potential economic returns gained from using traps and pheromones as part of a crop protection strategy for strawberries, they revealed a quality effect on the overall yield. The charts below illustrate their findings:

Chart 1. Quality effect of sticky traps in strawberries (Kirk and Sampson, 2013).

In summary, Kirk and Sampson (2013) found that trapping significantly increased the proportion of Class 1 fruit, and pheromones further improved their efficacy. These measures would be particularly suited to growers who wish to optimise their yield quality and those whose crops undergo strict quality checks before entering the market. 

When used together, these tools can provide a thorough picture of the current and future trends in Thrips challenges on a farm. Having these measures in place early could provide the vital data farmers need to make informed and well-timed crop protection decisions, reducing cost and improving crop quality.

“Having the preservation of the environment at our core, we continually ask ourselves what more we can do to help build a sustainable future.” – Barnaba Rotich

By Cory Smit, Dudutech Marketing


As hygiene supervisor at Dudutech, Antony Matete oversees the recycling of 10,500 product bottles and 200 high-density boxes per week, helping to mitigate the environmental impact of getting our products to the fields where they do their work. Once cleaned and all microbial residues have been removed, the materials are reintegrated into the packaging processing line for use on future orders.

The recycling scheme aims to capture and process at least 70% of all the bottles boxes delivered within Kenya but often exceeds this. According to Eric Langat, Dudutech Logistics and Packaging manager, “the delivery drivers who collect the returned materials typically bring back between 5-10k bottles per week from customers.” In numbers, the scheme reintegrates at least 577kgs of plastic per week or ~30t per year.

By using high-quality HDPE bottles and shipping boxes for the majority of our products, the standards are designed with recycling in mind, ensuring that the materials are durable, easy to clean and can be washed for reuse many times.

To ramp-up throughput, we commissioned an automatic bottle washing machine in January 2020, enabling Anthony and his team to process up to 200 bottles in 5 mins. The high-pressure machine thoroughly cleans the bottles of any microbial residues, dust and contaminants.

Barnaba Rotich, Head of Commercial at Dudutech said, “as a business in the 21st century, it is imperative that we work towards the long term sustainability aspects of our business by taking care of the short term… Having the preservation of the environment at our core, we continually ask ourselves what more we can do to help build a sustainable future. Our mission often takes us to the smallest common denominators of each part of the business, allowing the adjustments, such as the recycling scheme, to have a deep impact on efficiency without compromising quality.”

Meet the new Technical Product Team

By: Cory Smit – Dudutech Marketing and Communications

Dudutech is excited to announce the introduction of the new Technical Product Team, John Ogechah and George Mala. The newly created role comes as part of a commitment to continuous improvement and aims at connecting all arms of the business to deliver insights, facilitate feedback and provide support to the Technical Liaison Officers (TLOs) who work directly with growers.

John Ogechah, Dudutech Technical Product Manager, during an in-field instructional session.

John Ogechah, Technical Product Manager (formerly Dudutech Training Manager), is an entomologist with extensive in-field experience and a strong drive for agricultural education. 

“I have spent the last 15 years of my fulfilling professional life empowering farmers with knowledge and skills on sustainable agriculture to survive and grow in the dynamic agricultural landscape.” said John. “The Product Management role is another exciting opportunity to devise solutions to farmers’ problems by steering the vision, design and execution of products that are truly good for the people, planet and profit,” he continued. 

George Mala, Dudutech Technical Product Lead, at the Dudutech Trial Site.

George Mala, who also shifted from the Training department, is an IPM evangelist and horticulturalist with over 20 years’ experience in the industry, 13 of which have been at Dudutech. 

According to George, “unlike conventional crop protection products, biopesticides are unique in that their users require closer technical support.” He went on to say, “this role is exciting for me in that it builds on my experience in on-farm training and focuses it on providing this support to growers.”

The customer-facing function positions John and George as feedback channels between the customers and Dudutech to foster an environment for open discourse and to create awareness for and provide information on IPM in the form of training sessions. Working side-by-side with the TLOs, who have an in-depth understanding of each farm they look after, the TPLs bring new synergies into action to advise on how to drive the performance of their IPM strategy.

A key role of the TPLs is to manage extensive agronomical trials to gather a rich data set on performance, compatibility and best practices for Dudutech’s range of current and upcoming products. John and George will use the data they develop to inform improvements in production, technical operations, training and product materials.

According to Tom Mason, Dudutech MD, “the technical product roles build a robust communication channel between the infield customer experience and our manufacturing facilities and partners both locally and abroad. This will ensure that product efficacy, correct use, and compatibility with farmers programs are always central to our business practice. Enabling the farmer to maximise the value that Dudutech is able to offer.

“John Ogechah and George Mala are deeply experienced professionals who have supported our customers with technical insight and knowledge, sharing with customers in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Kenya and the UK,” Tom said, adding that he is pleased that Dudutech can now “focus their talent and experience in a more product-centric manner.” 

Tom went on to explain that, “Integrated pest management (IPM) is evolving at an incredible pace, horticulture and in turn crops such as avocado, citrus, viticulture and row crops are under further pressure to reduce residue levels in the crop and synthetic chemistry is now more than ever focused on compatibility with biological solutions. At the centre of all this, farmers need to do more with less and to remain competitive the core focus is to boost yields.” 

In memory of Philip Carlton-Smith

Posted by

The Dudutech team is deeply saddened by the passing of Philip Carlton-Smith on 26 March 2020. 

As CEO of Ecospray and IBMA UK Chairman, Philip Carlton-Smith has been a part of the Dudutech community for over 5 years, uniting behind a common cause to promote sustainable agriculture. According to Ecospray’s Chairman, Stephen Falder, Philip had “bravely engaged with an aggressive and serious Cancer for months.” 

Tom Mason, Dudutech MD, who knew Philip personally, said that he was “an incredible business leader, he leaves and powerful and memorable presence in the entire Biological Crop Protection industry that will be sorely missed. I am pleased that we will continue the work that Philip and the entire Ecospray team helped us develop for the East and Southern African markets”.
