Biopesticides in Latin America

The market is changing

There is a clear global trend of growing demand for healthier and safer food, linked to a more ecological and sustainable production, capable of ensuring quality without affecting the health of those who consume them, as well as without disturbing the ecosystem or compromising future generations . .

Thus, we see that the main countries demand more and more healthy foods with low or no agro-toxic content; This is manifested through the continuous restrictions on the Maximum Permitted Limits of Residues (MRLs) as well as the constant restrictions on the use of Active Ingredients (IA) by national and international organizations, due to contamination problems and toxicological danger.

We also find continuous resistance problems to chemical active principles, which often forces us to apply a higher content of A.I. without achieving good control results, feeding an endless vicious circle, which generates more resistance, a greater load of toxic waste and unsafe food. It is increasingly common to find cases of resistance to chemical molecules, which makes it difficult to control weeds, pests and diseases, making it difficult to access good levels of production and quality.

In turn, the world population registers unstoppable growth, reaching values ​​above 8,000 million inhabitants and it is projected to exceed 9,700 million by 2050, and more than 11,500 million inhabitants by 2100; This translates into higher food consumption, so it is essential to ensure high levels of production and quality.

Likewise, productive activities seek to have greater competitiveness at the global level, aligning with the accentuated demands at the population level, so they aim to seek productive alternatives to the conventional one, with organic and ecological productions, they seek market niches that grow more and more , and that they pay an added value for the production.

Due to this broad but at the same time marked context, societies are increasingly looking at agriculture and calling for efficient green technologies. This social pressure generates changes in the demand for primary products and therefore in the demand for phytosanitary products, which provide and ensure high levels of production and quality, with the least possible environmental impact.

Knowing the needs of the sector and it is that we seek to provide solutions to all these problems that are increasingly marked, bringing to the market BIO technologies typical of the know-how that TENSAC has presented for more than 30 years, being a chemical company that offers BIO solutions to different industrial and agricultural sectors, all with the particularity of formulating 100% Ecological and Biodegradable products.

¿What are the new demands of the agricultural market regarding BIOPRODUCTS?

• Higher productivity

• Better production quality

• Production with added value

• Primary products free of residues

• Eliminate resistance problems

• Lower environmental impact

• Solve your pest and disease problems without having to worry about banning conventional chemical molecules.
