Our Rule Protecting Crop by respecting Ecosystems

Biorational Innovation

Biorationals are registered plant protection products generally derived from the natural environment, offering improved benefits for plants, people and the planet, which are increasingly important factors for Integrated Crop Production to satisfy requirements of the value chain and consumers.

Biorational Innovation Team

Certis has worked successfully for many years in the development of innovative biorational solutions for growers and farmers and has built a wide portfolio of biorational crop protection products. The Biorational Innovation Team dedicates resources to manage all new biorational product opportunities and aims to broaden the number of appropriate products going into full development with a faster route to market.

Potentially interesting new products are screened in the laboratory and / or in small semi-field plot trials at the Certis’ Biorational Research Centre (BRC) near Nimes in France to check their performance under controlled conditions. A product will only be tested in field trials after the in-house screening has given good results.

A product that has shown consistent performance in line with our requirements is then handed over to the most relevant Portfolio Team for final dossier development and registration in relevant countries.

Certis Europe’s ambition is to grow biorational products to 25% of its sales by 2022.
