EdenShield is developing a nontoxic insect control product for greenhouse crops that is based on botanical extracts of medicinal plants endemic to Israel’s desert. EdenShield’s product is applied to greenhouse screens where it masks the odor of the crop inside and lowers insect attraction. This mechanism of action does not cause the development of resistance in the target pests and allows the product to maintain its efficacy throughout the entire growing season. The product can be used alone or as a component in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs.
In the future, EdenShield will develop products for direct application to the crops.
