About Us & General Information
Ecogrow is an organization commited to providing solutions for the Environmentally sound management of Amenity Turf and Horticultural growing organizations.
Our initial focus is on commercializing a range of Environmentally sound technologies for the control of insect pests the first of which is an Australian Research success story the CSIRO Entomopathogenic Nematode (EN) Technology.
Ecogrow is a wholly Australian owned and managed. Ecogrow is funded by a group of investors who are keen environmentalists and who want to contribute to the environment by funding well researched ecological alternatives to traditional chemical management strategies for insects, weeds and fungal pests.
The CSIRO EN technology is the first technology that Ecogrow is commercializing. ENs are the second most widely used biological control worldwide. The CSIRO have been world leaders in this with the two largest successful bio control projects to their name.
The Largest project was in controlling the Syrex Wasp a pest of pine forests which is estimated to have saved the Australian pine industry some $4 Billion dollars.
The other project was in saving the shade trees that provide shade to important trade routes in China. Without the shade rural trade which relies on those routes would be greatly reduced.
