Private individuals and agricultural companies that formulate and/or market biological crop protection and growth enhancing products (for example microbial, botanical or biochemical) are invited to contact Johan Gerber at johan@biocrophealth.co.za  for listing on this page    

 Biological Crop Health does not support any company or individual whose product has the potential to cause acute poisoning (via inhalation, oral intake or dermal exposure) to humans and animals alike , that carries a high risk  to reduce or eradicate pollinators like honey bees, beneficial insect predators and parasites, or products that can  cause irreversible damage to humans, wild life and the environment. All microbial, botanical and fertilizer products has to be registered under Act 36 of 1947. An import permit is required for macro-organisms (beneficial insects, mites, etc.) and entomopathogenic nematodes.
