Vestaron Technology – The Epitome of Rational Design
The demand among regulators, growers, food retailers and consumers for safe and environmentally friendly biopesticides that effectively target pests is higher than ever before - and growing rapidly.
In an industry with billions of dollars of market potential, Vestaron has seized the opportunity to commercialize products that utilize the best remaining pure play in bioinsecticides.
Through innovative molecular biology advancements, our methods resulted in venom-based technology that revitalizes the discovery process for insecticides – and the impact on the industry will be substantial.
Venom-based products are a valuable solution to rising grower concerns.
Insect resistance to existing insecticides and chemistries is a huge concern in the industry.
More than 500 insect and mite populations are known to be resistant to one or more classes of modern insecticides.
Growers are seeking greater flexibility in field options and the majority of current chemical insecticides are limited.
Field results of Vestaron venom-based Spear™ technology prove both safety and effectiveness of products against many pests, including: thrips, beetles, and caterpillars.
Insects are continuously evolving their resistance to insecticides faster than the industry can produce new solutions. Vestaron’s peptide-derived products target entirely different molecular pathways that no other company has pursued. Because of this, there is a competitive cost and robust acquisition environment for these goods.
