Seipasa, a company specialized in the formulation, development and marketing of botanical-based solutions (biopesticides, biostimulants and fertilizers) for agriculture, has announced the launch of Pirecris. It is a new biopesticide developed from an exclusive formulation and with proven efficacy on more than 140 species of pest insects.
The power of the formula of Pirecris, patented by Seipasa, is based on a vegetal matrix, antioxidant and protective that, along with a natural synergist, carries the active ingredient and guarantees the highest efficay of the product. 100% of Pirecris formulation is designed to perform as an active substance with insecticide effect.
"With Pirecris, Seipasa extends its presence within the Spanish phytosanitary market," says Pedro Peleato, CEO of Seipasa. "The product is already successfully marketed in other international markets in Europe, America or Africa. Its broad scope means that Pirecris is an excellent product which has been widely proven effective". "Obtaining the register for the Spanish market is a milestone for us. Not only does it culminate a long process of work and dedication, but it also reinforces Seipasa’s commitment to natural technology” claims Peleato.
Biomolecules of lipid nature are among the components of Pirecris’ green matrix. These biomelocules strengthen Pirecris insecticide action: they cover the insect's spiracles until they are plugged and cause the insect death by suffocation. In addition, the natural antioxidant compounds of Pirecris provide stability and increase the shelf life of the product.
Pirecris has been designed to act by contact, providing a knock down effect to eliminate more than 140 species of pest insects including aphids, trips, whiteflies, caterpillars and beetles.
Francisco Espinosa, R&D&i manager at Seipasa, claims: "with Pirecris we have reached each and every of the formulation challenges established at the beginning of the project. We have designed a 100% natural product. The active ingredient synergizes with the rest of the natural elements of the matrix, enhancing the effect and thus achieving high levels of efficacy ".
The advanced formulation of Pirecris replaces piperonyl butoxide (PBO) as synergist for carboxylates and natural antioxidants. Seipasa guarantees its commitment to natural technology towards a more rational, sustainable and environmentally friendly agriculture.
Pirecris can be use the day before harvesting and has been developed to be applied in all types of agricultures. The product results in a very useful tool to manage resistances. Being a 100% natural product, Pirecris can be used in Integrated Pest Management programs and organic production systems.
"The efficacy of Pirecris is suported by more than 80 field tests carried out in the most demanding farms worldwide," says Javier Nácher, technical manager of Seipasa. Nácher also highlighted the "pride of being part of the broad team of professionals who have worked for years to develop Pirecris".

Pirecris joins Seipasa's wide range of natural solutions for agriculture with zero residues. Nakar, a natural insecticide with an excellent control by contact of soft-bodied insects in all stages of development; or Septum, with a powerful formulation that acts on sporulation and mildew infection, spotted and Alternaria, are already listed as references within the company's biopesticides line.
Also, Kynetic4 stands out within the line of biostimulants. The product has been designed to get better blooming, an optimal pollination and fertilization and an excellent fruit set. Seiland is a root protector that strengthens the plant defense system while stimulating crops to overcome the attack of nematodes and / or soil diseases.
