Saltigo in pheromone deal
Saltigo has signed a contract for another production campaign of the insect pheromone Pheron E7-E/Z9-12Ac with Provivi, which provides crop protection systems via pheromone technology. The two companies worked together to complete the technical transfer, optimisation and scale-up to tonne volumes at Saltigo’s site in Leverkusen.
Pheron E7-E/Z9-12Ac is the active ingredient targeting Lobesia botrana, the European grapevine moth. It is one of a family of pheromone-based mating disruption products that target key pests in row crops and in tree fruits, nuts and vines. It was first approved for use in France in 2021.
