Certis USA: The Biopesticide Company

Certis USA is a leading manufacturer and distributor of a broad line of biopesticide products for specialty agricultural and horticultural markets and the home and garden market. Certis USA products provide valuable solutions by meeting the challenges faced by today’s growers who are seeking sustainable alternatives, resistant pest management and harvest solutions, and low pesticide residues for market flexibility and export accessibility.


Organically Approved

Our product line features the broadest OMRI-listed biological offerings in the industry. More than 30 of our products are OMRI-listed, National Organic Program (NOP) approved and most are residue exempt. But our biopesticides are not solely used on organic acres. Most of our products are used by growers of conventionally produced agricultural crops.

Wasco Facility

Certis USA’s fermentation facility in Wasco, CA has been actively producing biopesticides for more than 50 years. Approximately 60 people work at the facility to produce the organically certified products sold by Certis USA and its tolling customers. Through its renovations over the years, the facility has been awarded many efficiency awards and certifications.

About Biopesticides

Everyone is leaping onto the Biopesticide bandwagon. And, for good reasons. Although biopesticides are less than 5 percent of the global crop protection market, the estimated market for biopesticides worldwide in 2015 was estimated to be $2.7 billion. The market is conservatively estimated to grow 14 to 17 percent annually and is projected to reach $4.1 billion in 2018. It is the fastest growing segment in crop protection. read more
