AV02 Biofungicides and Biostimulants

Objective

The objective of this report was to provide our client with insights into the market access strategies being pursued by its competitors for biological in the crop protection business. Our client wanted to know what the competitors are doing, how successful they have been and what their reputations are among user groups. It also sought advice on what it should be doing to compete successfully in the industry.

Method

CPL combined desk-based research and interviews to complete this report. To provide the client with a review of the technologies and species of biological pesticides and biostimulants, we used scientific literature and company reports. Company websites, government statistics, trade news and interviews with industry participants were used to profile the activities of companies producing biologicals and allow CPL to generate recommendations to the client. Contacts included manufacturers, distributors, research organisations, regulatory specialists and grower groups.
