AN IMPORTANT RECOGNITION OF THE WORK ECOFLORA HAS DONE FOR YEARS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS FOR AGRICULTURE IN THE REGION
The Gowan Company is proud to announce that Ecoflora®, its newly created division dedicated to the development of innovative solutions for crop bio-protection, has been selected as a finalist in the 2019 Global Biopesticides Awards with its EcoSwing® product. Biopesticides are made from ingredients of natural origin such as plants, bacteria, fungi and minerals for the control of pests in agriculture and horticulture.
The winner of this award will be announced at the Biopesticides Summit, which will take place on July 2 and 3 of 2019 at the University of Swansea in the United Kingdom. This award gives recognition to the most important achievements and advances around the world in the field of biological control and crop protection in the last two years. It celebrates the success, excellence and contribution that its finalists have made to agriculture internationally.
Ecoflora® was founded in 1998 and is a pioneer in the development of plant extracts for effective and sustainable crop protection. As part of its ongoing commitment to offering integrated solutions to organic and conventional growers, Gowan purchased the remaining shares of EcoFlora Agro in January of 2019 (after having invested in it in 2011), thus strengthening its division of bio-inputs for agricultural use and giving it a global reach through the Ecoflora brand. The acquisition combines Ecoflora’s specialized capabilities in biorational product development with Gowan’s 50-plus years of experience in the registration, development, marketing and sales of solutions for the integrated management of pests and diseases throughout the world.
