National Nut Grower Feature: Peptides as Insecticides

In the Winter Issue of National Nut Grower, the publication highlights the transformation happening within the agricultural insecticide market. Vestaron is featured as one of the companies disrupting the insecticide market through the use of peptides in integrated pest management systems. In this feature, SVP of Sales and Marketing, Ben Cicora is interviewed as he dives into the distinction of Vestaron’s peptide-based insecticides against other products on the market.

“We take naturally occurring peptides and engineer them for performance. We carve out everything that may be toxic to humans, fish, birds, pollinators, and just focus on the insecticidal activity, and we can express that to where it will perform much like a synthetic.”
