About Agragene
Biotech Company
Agragene is commercializing biological crop pest control agents that are non–polluting and thus environmentally safe and acceptable. Biocontrol reduces the use of environmentally unsuitable chemicals. This encourages a more natural ecological balance providing a safe harbor for beneficial insects, such as bees and ladybugs. Insecticide resistance is decreased which enhances the effectiveness of integrated pest management.

Agragene’s sterile male insects are released into the field. The sterile males find and mate with wild female crop pests. The resulting eggs are unfertilized and no viable progeny are produced. Importantly, this does not eradicate the crop pest species but achieves cost-effective control of the local pest population throughout the season. Therefore, growers reduce the use of chemical insecticides.
