As leaders in the evolution of agricultural science, Vestaron is leading an innovative, sustainable peptide-based revolution in crop protection.

We provide powerful novel solutions for growers to overcome resistance without sacrificing performance or safety – emPOWERed by peptides for the sustainability of farms, farmers and the planet.

Sustainability is about having effective, environmentally friendly tools at the grower’s ready hand to control the insects that would otherwise remove 1/3 our food supply.

Chief Scientific Officer, Vestaron

Our innovations promote sustainability through:

  • Novel modes of action in the fight against resistance
  • Renewable product development using sugars and yeast, not fossil fuels
  • Harnessing the power of synthetics with the safety and sustainability of biologicals
For farmers, it’s critical to maintain the delicate balance between healthy, highly productive crops and the health of pollinators and natural enemies of pests. Examining your pest control strategy and utilizing products like SPEAR® that target pests without harming bees is a significant step you can take now toward achieving that ideal balance.

SVP Sales and Marketing, Vestaron

We’re working in collaboration with nature by:

  • Developing a peptide-based technology that breaks down to amino acids
  • Promoting land use stewardship with softer chemistry
  • Being soft on honey bees, mammals, fish and natural enemies of pests
  • Targeting only specific pests, protecting beneficial insects and their important impact
  • Spreading the Bee Friendly Farming Message and promoting Certification
Products like Vestaron Spear® LEP help us get in there and control that population early, so the hope is thoughout the season you're applying less, you're spraying less... there's less environmental impact to the orchard so we have the highest quality fruit with the lowest amount of input.
