During 2015 the Nadorcotts were badly affected by snails – the first time ever that we had this type of snail damage on Kruisrivier.

The other cultivars did not seem to attract as many snails as the Nadorcotts and in the past we were fortunate enough to get by with the minimum of intervention. With the Nadorcotts I felt as if I was caught with my pants around my ankles. I had absolutely no idea how to tackle this problem – until Arnold came to my help and we started monitoring the snail traps.

The ability to make informed decisions regarding when and where to control the snails, and with which products, was of enormous help. We soon discovered that timing and placement were the most important elements of the programme.

In my opinion, cheaper products are just as effective as expensive ones. At the moment the snails are well under control and we have not seen any damage.
