Certis USA: The Biopesticide Company

Certis USA is a leading manufacturer and distributor of a broad line of biopesticide products for specialty agricultural and horticultural markets and the home and garden market. Certis USA products provide valuable solutions by meeting the challenges faced by today’s growers who are seeking sustainable alternatives, resistant pest management and harvest solutions, and low pesticide residues for market flexibility and export accessibility.


Organically Approved

Our product line features the broadest OMRI-listed biological offerings in the industry. More than 30 of our products are OMRI-listed, National Organic Program (NOP) approved and most are residue exempt. But our biopesticides are not solely used on organic acres. Most of our products are used by growers of conventionally produced agricultural crops.

Wasco Facility

Certis USA’s fermentation facility in Wasco, CA has been actively producing biopesticides for more than 50 years. Approximately 60 people work at the facility to produce the organically certified products sold by Certis USA and its tolling customers. Through its renovations over the years, the facility has been awarded many efficiency awards and certifications.

Worldwide Impact

We export our products to more than 50 countries worldwide. Plus, we are owned by Mitsui & Co., Ltd., one of the world’s most diversified trading, investment and services companies. It has a global network of 150 offices in 67 countries and 320 associated companies worldwide.
