PioneerPioneer, we invented the ´buzziness´
1987, that is when the Biobest story begins thanks to the magical idea of Roland De Jonghe. The veterinary from Westerlo started using bumblebees to pollinate tomatoes, thanks to which tomato growers all over the world have seen massive improvements.
After this revolution in tomato crops, bumblebees were soon introduced in several other crops. As growers also became more aware of the well-being of their bumblebees, biological control gained ground all over the world. For these reasons, we can proudly say that ‘We Invented the Buzziness’.
