In this case study, a seed breeding and development company which had been researching biopesticides engaged CPL Business Consultants to formulate a business plan for a new seed treatment.

The company had isolated and developed fungicide-resistant microbial biopesticides for seed treatments and required a go-to-market strategy. CPL’s comprehensive report provided the information and insight needed, along with a clear and actionable plan for commercialisation.

The objective of this project was to provide the client with an overview of the agrochemicals business and the biopesticides business in order to assist in determining its plans for its microbial product(s).
