Our Rule

Protecting Crop by respecting Ecosystems

Biorationals & Horticulture

The Biorationals and Horticulture Portfolio focuses on biorational and conventional products for both indoor and outdoor horticultural crops.

What are Biorationals?

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.

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