The Belgian company develops organic crop protection products and does so based on camelid antibodies, which are very straightforward compared to other animals' antibodies. Once the testing phase is completed, the registration will take another four or five years in Europe, and about three and a half years in the US.
Agrosavfe CEO Marnix Peferoen: "We have a unique substance that protects plants against multiple fungi, while most organic products can handle only one fungus. In that sense, we compete more with chemical crop protection products than with other organic pesticides." Peferoen emphasizes this is an organic product though. "It's not toxic to people and not to bees either."
