WHO WE ARE

WHO WE ARE

Vestaron is dedicated to improving the safety, efficacy and sustainability of crop protection. We aim to displace our reliance on conventional synthetic pesticides with biological peptides that are designed for safety to humans, birds, fish, pollinators and the environment. As part of this, the company has developed a proprietary, fermentation-based, peptide production platform that is leading to the development of a broad range of biological crop protection and trait products.

The power of synthetics. The safety and sustainability of biologicals.

Conventional synthetic pesticides can offer good efficacy and reliable performance, but they can also have undesirable impacts to workers and consumers, to beneficial organisms and to the environment. It is increasingly difficult to discover and commercialize new synthetic active ingredients due to rising development costs, late-stage failures and challenging regulatory hurdles. Existing solutions continually face pesticide resistance issues. At Vestaron, we believe that biological peptides are an answer.

OUR VALUE POINTS

Effective
Proven efficacy of a synthetic with the sustainability and benefits of a biological
Non-Toxic
Designed to be safe on honey bees, fish and mammals, and to work in coordination with natural enemies and biological control agents
Flexible
Unique mode of action on the insect nervous system (nicotinic acetylcholine receptor), showing no cross-resistance with other insecticides, rotational partner for resistance management w/ 4-hour REI and 0-day PHI.
Revolutionary
Proprietary platform and approach to generate peptide-based bioinsecticides that are yielding novel modes of action and a rich pipeline of new products for tools against major classes of insect and mite pests
