Certis Europe is a developer and manufacturer of conventional and biological pesticides.
Certis is also owner of the leading sprout suppressant for stored potatoes - Chlorpropham (CIPC), which it acquired from Luxan in 2006.
Several CIPC formulations have been developed under the brand name Gro-Stop™. Tubers can be treated with Gro-Stop Ready, Gro-Stop Basis or Gro-Stop Dust as they are being placed in store.
Additionally or alternatively, stores can be fogged with a space treatment with Gro-Stop Fog or Gro-Stop Innovator during the storage period. Using the ventilation system, the fog will reach all the stored potatoes whether stored in bulk storage or in boxes.
Gro-Stop Innovator is the first formulation suitable for cold fogging and sets a new standard in sprout suppressants.
Certis Europe is a subsidiary of the Japanese company Mitsui &Co.
Certis has offices in The Netherlands (Head Office), Belgium, France, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom
