  • Challenges and solutions with Biorationals in the field   2019-10-16

    From political, retail and consumer perspectives there is a clear push to make all sectors of food production less dependent on conventional chemical crop protection products. Great progress has been made in the use of Biorational products in protected cropping for ornamentals, fruit and vegetables but there remains considerable discrepancy between the political demands and the practical realities at this moment in field crops. The struggle will not be to find new Biorational products, but to make them consistently effective in the field.

  • Certis Europe achieves successful biorational control in outdoor crops   2017-10-25

    Great progress has been made over the last few decades in the development of biorational products, which include biopesticides, pheromones, beneficial insects and biostimulants, and the sector is showing a substantial growth rate at around 15% annually. This has stimulated a variety of acquisitions in recent years of producers of such biorationals by the large agrochemical companies, to assure their presence in this market.

  • The growing importance of biopesticides in Europe   2014-11-05

    Political and regulatory pressures are causing a clear shift in the European crop protection market away from conventional pest and disease control. At the same time persistent demands from retail players and consumers for reductions of chemical residues in produce also result in increasing investigation of alternative biocontrol products.
