A Sustainable Approach
Responsibly supporting growers and the environment
BVT’s highly targeted system provides an alternative pest and disease management solution, which, unlike the traditional spray cycle of pesticides on a crop, reduces both water usage and carbon footprint.
Our technology represents a significant step forward towards a new foundation for more sustainable crop improvement strategies. Here’s how we are different:
- BVT does not require water
Compare this to standard pesticide spraying, which can take 600 gallons of water to spray just one acre – three times per season.
- BVT’s system has a low carbon impact
Where traditional methods are delivered by tractors and other machinery that require a lot of power to manufacture and operate, our active ingredients are delivered naturally via commercially reared bees.
- BVT reduces pesticide load
Hence we are not contaminating soil and the water table.
- BVT reduces the chances of chemical resistance
This problem results in growers having to increase the volume of pesticides used during each spray cycle. Instead, BVT uses commercially-reared bees to carry active ingredients to plants, aligning with the natural process of pollination.
- BVT is a natural process
It can be used in both organic and conventional farming.
