Russell IPM signs agreement in China

Russell IPM signed a collaboration agreement with Zhunghe Group in China during an official ceremony attended by Managing Director Dr. Al-Zaidi for the development of smart farm technology and the introduction of biorational solutions to the Chinese company's farms.

This auspicious event marks a new era for Russell IPM and its business in China, as this new partnership is a springboard for promoting more of the UK-based manufacturer's products in this new part of Asia.


Russell IPM is the leading manufacturer and supplier of innovative biorational pest control technologies. The company’s full product range works to protect all stages of the food supply chain using systems that help to reduce the use of pesticides to maintain a safe, secure, sustainable and eco-friendly way of protecting food and other products from pest damage.

Pheromone based technology allows species specific control of pests with little effects on beneficials. Furthermore, the airborne nature of the pheromone molecules mean that blanket spraying of chemicals is reduced to minimise residues on fresh produce. For this reason Russell IPM is proud to offer over 150 pheromone lures for the management of agricultural and commercial pests.

The Russell IPM headquarters and main production facilities are based in Deeside in the UK. In addition there are five marketing subsidiaries in Spain, Morocco, Algeria, Jordan and Bangladesh. However, Russell IPM has global outreach through working closely with distribution partners to supply a range of insect monitoring and control products worldwide.
