OUR PRODUCTS - CROP PROTECTION

 

Biological solutions are the fastest growing segment of the crop protection industry, and Eden is the only UK-listed company with a focus on this market with proven products and a growing business.


Eden’s plant protection products are derived from natural plant chemistry and suitable for a wide range of crops. Used on high-value fruits and vegetables, the product's efficacy and regulatory status make them ideally suited to solve the challenges faced by growers in today’s increasingly tough regulatory climate.
 

A key characteristic of Eden’s products is that they are exempt from pesticide residue limits and can be used up to the point of harvest, giving flexibility and security to growers. The solvent-free, stable formulations have high active ingredient loading capability in microcapsules which are free from polymers or microplastic.

 

 

FOLIAR DISEASE CONTROL

Eden has a number of products to target diseases such as powdery mildew and downy mildew in development and has already gained regulatory approval for Mevalone – a biofungicide targeting Botrytis, which is currently being sold throughout the southern EU zone and Kenya.

 

PROTECTED GLASS HOUSE CROPS

In addition to providing effective disease prevention and control, the safety profile of Eden’s products means that they are well-suited to environments in which worker exposure can be relatively high.

 

SOIL PESTS

Parasitic nematode populations can cause considerable damage to over 2000 species of plant, many of which are high value vegetable crops and horticultural species. The financial cost of nematode damage for farmers, gardeners and owners of golf courses and sports fields is substantial.

Cedroz is Eden’s bio-nematicide and has already gained regulatory approval in Malta, Belgium and Mexico and emergency authorisation for use in Italy.

 

POST-HARVEST APPLICATIONS

Shelf life extension, lack of pesticide residues and improved produce quality are key objectives in the high-value fruit and vegetable market. Eden’s Mevalone biofungicide has already received emergency use authorisation for use on apples in France, to reduce post-harvest losses because of its favourable safety profile and lack of residues.
