Sustainability - Integrated plant protection with sustainable agriculture in mind

The high efficiency as well as the gentle, safe application of our products and solutions is just as much a priority as acting in harmony with biodiversity and climate protection goals. This is why we focus intensively on biological control agents with a view to sustainable agriculture and integrated plant protection. To do so, we are constantly expanding our core competences – formula development, biology and registration.

For future generations

As a family company, we see it as our responsibility to operate in such a way that future generations will be left a stable economic system as the basis for their welfare, along with an intact and livable environment. We therefore follow the objectives of the EU Commission, which is striving to make industrial production greener, digitized, and autonomous.


Working and growing in harmony with the environment

With its Green Deal, the EU Commission has presented strategies that outline a vision of growth based on the economy and agricultural and forestry industries being modern, sustainable, and competitive. Kwizda Agro is taking up the Green Deal objectives and sees them as an opportunity.

We are incorporating our expertise into the formulation of complex solutions, developing our own organic products according to the principles of the Green Deal, and investing in production practices that are both climate-friendly and environmentally kind.
