Our Goal

Our goal is to replace chemical pesticides with good biological alternatives, such as microbial products, natural substances, beneficial insects and traps.

More than 30 years ago, we started our first production of plant protection products based on baculoviruses. Today, it has been widely recognized that the use of biological control measures offers not only a solution in organic agriculture, but also a highly effective tool within integrated or conventional pest management programs for environmental friendly and residue-free food production.
