Biobest Group N.V. has acquired Austria-based Agrotech Gartenbautechnik, a supplier of horticultural and crop protection products.

Founded in 1998, Agrotech has been an exclusive distributor of Biobest. Agrotech has served growers in Austria and some neighbouring countries to successfully roll out biocontrol and pollination programmes since 2004.

The acquisition will allow enhanced access to Biobest’s technical expertise, Biobest Academy, a comprehensive innovative product portfolio including high-tech IPM solutions and R&D collaboration.

Marc Mertens, CSO of Biobest Group NV agreed: “We strongly believe in the growth potential of the Austrian market. Therefore, we have taken this step to acquire Agrotech. With such a longstanding and strong relationship, we will further strengthen our offer and position in Austria. Biobest will increase its support to Agrotech and the Austrian growers to further promote the use of biocontrol crop protection.”
