As part of the clean-tech revolution, AgraQuest's BioInnovations Division is developing cutting edge technologies for use in seed treatment, food safety, post-harvest disease control, animal health and hygiene, human nutrition, home and garden, structural pest control, and vector control. Additional applications for AgraQuest's technologies lie in areas as diverse as detergents, cosmetics and healthcare.
AgraQuest's current portfolio of agrochemical products has been developed to deliver performance, flexibility and value to growers. Recognized as both highly effective and safe to beneficials, workers, and the environment, AgraQuest's brands include SERENADE®, RHAPSODY®, SONATA®, and BALLAD® fungicides and BARITONE® and REQUIEM® insecticides.
AgraQuest operates its own world-class manufacturing facility for the production of biopesticides and biochemical metabolites located in Tlaxcala, Mexico, allowing the company to enforce strict quality control standards on each batch produced.
