Koppert   Biological   Systems   produces   sustainable   cultivation solutions for food crops and ornamental plants. Together with growers and in partnership with nature, we work to make agriculture and horticulture healthier,  safer,  more  productive  and  resilient.  We  achieve this by using natural enemies to combat pest infestations; bumblebees for natural pollination; and biostimulants  that support and strengthen the crops both above and underground.

Competences & Capabilities

To  produce  safe  crops  and  ensure  food  security,  it  is  necessary to think in terms of sustainable cultivation systems. Our core disciplines include:

  • Pest and disease management
  • Natural pollination
  • Resilient growth
  • Digital and technical support, monitoring
  • Seed treatment
