EPA approves biopesticide KitoGreen


KitoZyme has been granted approval for its KitoGreen products by the U.S. Environment Protection Agency as biopesticides for multiple applications and crops.

KitoGreen is a unique technology that has been developed by KitoZyme to offer more sustainable options for farmers who are looking for greener antibacterial, antifungal, or nematicide alternative products. KitoGreen is patented and it is based on the valorization of co-products of the food industry, as well as being 100% non-animal, non-GMO, vegan, and non-toxic for the environment.

“This is a very important milestone for our company, as it clearly marks the start of a new business area for our technologies, besides our key pillars in winemaking & health,” said François Luthers, chief operations officer. “We are proud to bring greener, safer, and more efficient products to the industry and all users both in the US and across the globe.”

KitoZyme has already proven the efficacy of its compound for the prevention and the treatment of fungal diseases on a wide variety of crops, including vegetables, grapes, berries, and sports turfs, and the company is continuously strengthening its scientific knowledge.
