Beijing Multigrass: A breakthrough in the development of three major biopesticides – kasugamycin, gibberellic acid, oligo saccharin
Dec. 10, 2019
Du Wei, General Manager of Beijing Multigrass Formulation
Since its establishment, Beijing Multigrass has focused on the research, development, registration and sale of biological products, covering two types of biological products, which are plant-sourced products and biological fermentation-based products. Its plant-sourced products include matrine, rotenone, fungous proteoglycan and seaweed extract fertilizers while its biological fermentation-based products are spinosad, gibberellic acid and kasugamycin. The company currently has two production bases, which are Miyun in Beijing and Xinxiang in Henan.
Du Wei said that the company was initially engaged in export trade, as matrine was well-known in the international market and was widely recognized by the government, channel merchants, retailers and farmers from various countries. With developments to the domestic market, the company began to focus on research and development in the application technology of biopesticides, as well as on developing effective and long-lasting products for mixtures, to further expand its product portfolio and improve crop quality and safety. The company’s focus on biopesticides is expected to reap rewards in the near future, he added.

Zhang Jianbo pointed out that the function of Beijing Multigrass’ Baiclean product, oligo saccharin, is not only to prevent and control viruses, but also to improve light energy utilization, prevent and control soil-borne diseases, stimulate crop rooting and enhance plant stress resistance, via the induction of resistant proteins (enzymes), phytoalexin, growth hormones and other stress resistance factors. Meanwhile, it is noted that mixing the product with systemic pesticides creates a synergistic effect.
