PheroSyn, the company spun-out from Rothamsted Research to develop and produce novel pest pheromones, has been awarded an Innovate UK grant to develop the supply chain for a new set of insect pheromones.

The grant of around £200k will be used by PheroSyn to design scalable routes for two new products that target midges and weevils – key pests for legumes such as peas and beans. Working with PheroSyn on the project is the UK Processors and Growers Association (PGRO), the UK’s leading legume agronomists.
