CPL provided its client with a guide to the crop protection industry, particularly biological products. We detailed the motivations of companies to invest in the biologicals space, and what underlies market growth, as well as factors restraining growth. On the technical side, we reported on the various improvements seen in the production and performance of biopesticides and challenges companies have faced in scaling up and replicating performance seen in the lab to the commercial scale.
