Vancouver, BC (February 26, 2014) – Dr. Annett Rozek, Chief Scientific Officer of Terramera, was invited to present at the 3rd Annual Agrochemical Formulation Conference: From Vision to Product hosted by Informa Crops & Chemicals in Berlin, Germany on February 12 & 13, 2014.
The Agrochemical Formulation Conference was a valuable forum bringing key industry decision makers, scientists, regulators and policy makers together to discuss the latest trends of the formulation industry; topics included the effects of regulatory and marketing drivers on formulation, product development strategies and opportunities in global markets.
One of the highlights at the conference was the presentation given by Dr. Rozek, an imminent scientist at the forefront of bio pesticide innovation and research. Dr. Rozek provided an overview on the efficacy and benefits of bio-pesticides and the rise of botanical active ingredients in formulations, which garnered interest amongst researchers and commercial industry partners alike.
“The demand for biopesticides will continue to increase due to challenges like the development of resistance among pests and the increasingly knowledgeable and demanding consumer seeking sustainable, minimally toxic alternatives to conventional chemicals,” according to Dr. Rozek. “At Terramera, we have challenged the misconception that botanical formulations are not as effective as chemical ones by producing an effective, EPA registered biopesticide, CIRKIL© whose efficacy has out performed those of conventional chemical pesticides. We strongly believe that botanically based pesticides are a viable and effective pest management option and solution that the industry can no longer afford to ignore”, stated Karn Manhas, CEO of Terramera.
