GROPRO: Providing growers with the efficacy needed for an organic IPM program

The importance of organic production in the USA continues to rise with total sales of organic products in 2019 hitting $55 billion. Currently, it’s the biggest global market for organic products (# 2 is Germany and #3 is France). To meet this growing market demand, GROP. a USA based producer and supplier of bio-pesticides and bio-fertilizers, has been approved for 6 OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) listed materials. With these certifications, GROPRO brings a wide and effective portfolio into the organic agricultural market.

GROPRO is focusing its products on nematicide solutions such as Vigilance, fungicides (bio fungicide Zayin), sporicide/bacteriacide (Reckoning), insecticides (bio insecticide Wrath), mosquitos (Skeeter), gastropods (Stomp), and the company says its committed farmers have products that will provide active control and residual action under control. This product line is promised to provide growers with the efficacy that they have been wanting in an organic IPM program.

“We are excited to provide organic farmers with our unique and effective portfolio of new-generation bio-pesticides and bio-fertilizers, ensuring they can develop their important businesses successfully,” said James Ronan, CEO of GROPRO.
