Biobest is an internationally operating company with branch offices on all continents. Biobest Nederland is active in the consultancy, sales and distribution of biological crop protection. Pollinators, beneficial insects and biopesticides are supplied to growers, either directly or through distribution partners. The company once started with bumblebees in tomato cultivation. This opened the door to the further development of biological pest control. Meanwhile, there is a lot of growth in biological pest control. Worldwide fungicides and pesticides are being withdrawn from the market. Biobest compensates for this with biological pest control, both with beneficial insects, pheromones, monitoring tools such as sticky traps and ribbons and also with biological fungicides and pesticides. A lot of research and development is necessary in order to be able to serve growers properly and to keep track of the current situation.
Innovation partner of Delphy ISFC
Biobest is of the opinion that it is important to cooperate with an innovative company like Delphy: ‘As a supplier we want to join Delphy ISFC. From a commercial point of view but certainly also because this research location is important for the entire soft fruit sector. Innovations do happen here, and we want to contribute to that from our vision. Talking, sharing, improving’.
The Delphy ISFC location will be used to visit with customers and to show them the developments, close to the source. Of course Biobest will be present at future open days to invest in the soft fruit network.
