Protect Your Crops With Biological Control Agents

At AEMTEK, we understand how important it is to protect your crops from diseases caused by pathogens. That’s why we specialize in identifying, enumerating, and developing microbial biological control agents – microorganisms that can help safeguard crops from pathogen-induced diseases.

Biological control agents work by competing with pathogens for nutrients and space. In addition, many of these microorganisms infect and kill insects or produce metabolites that can inhibit pathogen growth, further enhancing their protective effects.
