To protect plants from harmful insects while reducing the use of pesticides.

Eden Shield has created an innovative and ecological new approach to crop protection:

EdenShield will become a leader in the field of crop protection by developing and marketing safe and environmentally-friendly insect control products.

ABOUT THE COMPANY

EdenShield is an Israel-based AgTech company, established in 2012. Our unique, proprietary, proven plant protection products are helping growers increase and improve their yield of cannabis, vegetable, and flower crops. These organic, safe, chemical free products leverage the naturally protective characteristics found in extracts from native Israeli semi-desert plants. The success of our products lies in their proprietary aromatic ingredients that mask plant odor and lower insect attraction thus eliminating pest born viruses. Additionally, EdenShield products contain important botanical extracts and nutrients, vital for plant health and development.
