Sero-X® Natural Insecticide
Set to revolutionise food and fibre production on a global scale, Sero-X® is a non-toxic, bee-friendly world-first plant extract bio-pesticide designed to offer an effective organic alternative to traditional synthetic pesticides. Sero-X® is dedicated to improving crop quality and saving one bee at a time!
Having gained global scientific attention due to its astounding agricultural benefits, Clitoria Ternatea’s bio-active compounds have been developed into a cutting-edge product for the very first time in Australia, by a proudly Australian- owned and operated rural company. A milestone for global science and farmers alike, Sero-X® is the first new active constituent to ever pass the regulatory approval requirements for Australian agricultural research and development. Better still, this allows Australian growers first access to a product that is destined to reshape the industry as we know it.
- It’s good for the bees: Did you know that bees are one of the most important creatures on Earth, for both humans and nature? Yet, with the use of toxic pesticides in modern agriculture, it should come as no surprise that our bee population is scarcer than ever before. Bees are responsible for 70% of the fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds that we eat on a daily basis. If bees become extinct, beef, dairy, corn, rice, coffee, entire food chains, animal species and a large chunk of the economy would likely go down with them. Sero-X® provides an alternative for consumers and farmers to make the choice to protect our bee population.
- It offers a smart alternative: Sero-X® offers farmers a choice to use a non-synthetic and highly effective pesticide, without the need for harsh and toxic chemicals. Likewise, with a growing demand for organic food, Sero-X® gives consumers added benefit!
- It supports Australian R&D: The technology behind Sero-X is a local treasure that has been discovered and developed here in Australia, supporting key research institutions and local jobs along the way.
- It’s Australian-made: Much like the technology behind it, the plant will be grown and the product will be manufactured in regional Australia, reducing our reliance on imported products, and instead shifting the focus onto supporting local jobs.
