Vestaron's development strategy positions it well to compete in a crowded biopesticide space

December 13, 2018 | Case Study

Vestaron began its technical development efforts by extracting peptides from spider venom that have apparent insecticidal activities. Its initial product releases, branded Spear, are approved for a number of uses and are not required to carry a pollinator toxicity statement on their labels. In a move that is relatively unique for the biopesticide space, the company has pursued in-depth research on those peptides' modes of action, resulting in a decision by the Insect Resistance Action Committee (IRAC) to create a new class of mode-of-action code to describe Vestaron's Spear products.
