Vestaron Partners with Capua Bioservices
Vestaron Corporation, a developer of novel, naturally occurring peptides with anti-insect properties, has signed a multi-year manufacturing agreement with Capua Bioservices for production of its Spear family of products.
Spear products are developed from naturally occurring peptides with anti-insect properties, according to Vestaron. These bioinsecticides are non-toxic to humans, mammals, birds, fish, honeybees and several other beneficial insects, and the absence of toxic residues give growers maximum flexibility in growing and harvesting their crops, according to the company. Spear products have the same effectiveness in controlling insects as synthetic insecticides, Vestaron said.
