Agricultural Products Development and Commercialization Specialists
Today’s crop protection and biotechnology companies know that bringing products to market requires knowledge, experience and speed. The most successful results occur when target markets and sales goals are accurately defined at the earliest stages and integrated into a comprehensive development and commercialization plan. This is true for both traditional agrochemical plant protection products and biopesticides that are targeted for the conventional and organic pest control markets.
Ewing & Associates achieves this with the creativity and resourcefulness required by all clients, from well established agrochemical multinationals to fast-growth biotechnology and biopesticide startups. We bring together combined knowledge from a worldwide network of associates to develop the right strategy for our clients, one that reduces costs and time to market by avoiding mistakes. We help you achieve the ultimate goal – product sales.
Ewing & Associates helps biopesticide, biotechnology and agrochemicals crop protection companies in the following areas
We define product development for crop protection as pesticide registration (EPA and CDPR), pesticide formulation and field and laboratory studies required for registration. This includes designing and implementing agricultural research programs and obtaining OMRI certification for organic pesticides. Read more…
It is important to get new agriculture technology into the hands of the public (universities, distributors, growers, etc.) as early as possible in order to build confidence in the product and learn how to use it. This often overlaps with Product Development and Product Sales and should be integrated into the overall plan. Read more…
Product Sales & Technical Support
Ewing & Associates now offers a product sales and technical support team that can establish and grow sales during a two or three year transition period between pesticide registration and market adoption of the crop protection product. This is especially important for biopesticides and biotechnology products. Read more…
Why Do Biopesticides Present More Challenges to Commercialize Than Synthetic Chemicals?
Ewing & Associates has a long history of working with traditional agrochemicals which have set the standard for “normal” agricultural practices. We use this knowledge and expertise to effectively guide biopesticides towards market adoption, a more difficult task. Why?
Biopesticides generally add another variable to crop protection strategies. In addition to the life cycles of the crop and pest, another biological component is added to control a problem and conditions must be optimized to favor the biopesticide.
Biopesticide companies commonly wait until after pesticide registration is obtained before introducing their crop protection product to the market. This delays product sales.
Biopesticides require more technical support during the market introduction and market adoption phases.
