Incorrect Product Recommendation – New Zealand Orchid Industry


A miticide had been incorrectly recommended and widely promoted to commercial growers by an agricultural re-seller as being safe to use on cymbidium orchids and certain other ornamental plants. The chemical caused varying degrees of damage in commercial nurseries with the final effects unable to be known at the time the claim was first lodged.  ARC was appointed by the solicitors acting for the product manufacturer’s insurers to advise on a mitigation and recovery strategy and to quantify the losses incurred.


ARC - the right choice.
