‘Government not recognizing biopesticides’

The increasing global demand for food, biodiversity conservation and changing production conditions due to climate change have placed more pressure on agriculture than ever before


Mr Santosh Nair, CEO, Camson Bio Technologies

To adapt to these challenges of tomorrow, innovation plays a key role in helping farmers grow yields sustainably and conserve natural resources.

Bangalore-based Camson BioTechnologies is aiming to fulfil this need by offering hybrid seeds, bio-fertilizers, and biocides that are non-poisonous, eco-friendly, and residue-free to the farming community. 

Mr Santosh Nair, the CEO of the company, in an exclusive interview shares his company's plans with BioSpectrum.

Edited excerpts:

Q: Why Camson is planning to demerge its seeds business in to a separate company?
Mr Santosh Nair: This move will allow Camson to focus on its smaller but faster growing bio pesticide business. This would de-risk the business model, leading to a better valuation of the firm and would also be beneficial from a regulatory angle.
We would be naming our seeds business as Camson Seeds and bio-pesticide business as Camson Biotechnologies.
