Andermatt Kenya Limited, a leading agricultural solutions provider, has recently announced the full registration of Eco-Bb® (Beauveria bassiana) in Kenya. The product has received the registration number PCPB (CR) 2308 and is now approved for use in controlling pests such as red spider mite, thrips, mealybug on roses, as well as thrips, aphids, whitefly and red spider mites on French beans.
Eco-Bb®, developed by South Africa-based Andermatt PHP, is a bioinsecticide formulated with multiple modes of action, making it an invaluable addition to integrated pest management (IPM) strategies for growers. This innovative solution offers a broad spectrum of pest control, assisting farmers in achieving phytosanitary compliance and gaining access to international markets, including the European Union.
Expressing their gratitude, Matt Janks, Andermatt PHP Product Manager, commended the collaboration between Andermatt Kenya and the South African team. He stated, “We’d like to acknowledge and thank the Andermatt Kenya team. Through close collaboration and after extensive trials and research, we are delighted to add roses to the Eco-Bb® label. We are confident that our new customers in Kenya will benefit from what Eco-Bb® has to offer.”
Although Eco-Bb® has been successfully used by farmers in South Africa since 2011 and has undergone testing in various conditions across Africa and worldwide, its registration in Kenya opens up a new international market for the product. Andermatt Kenya anticipates further expansion into other markets in the future.
