Thinking differently about crop protection
Insect pests can reduce global crop yields by 10-14 % annually and damage between 9 and 20 % of stored food crops, but how can these challenges be overcome?
Today, hundreds of insect pest species are resistant to one or more commercially available insecticides. This – along with concerns about environmental and human safety – has resulted in a demand for new, environmentally friendly bio-insecticides, with novel modes of action, to achieve better selectivity, particularly to protect pollinators.
We’re here to help you!
At Venomtech, we are committed to enabling breakthroughs in the discovery and development of effective bio-insecticides to protect crops against pest organisms. Our distinctive approach takes advantage of the broad spectrum of insect-killing and immobilising abilities of natural compounds produced by insectivorous animals, which have evolved to avoid the development of resistance.
We offer a range of unique services designed to help the development of bio-insecticides.
And with the support of a full hit-to-lead follow-up service, our dedication to your success is clear.
