About us

Dudutech is Africa’s leader in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) with a wealth of experience in designing and delivering biological pest control solutions developed “By Growers for Growers”. We research, develop and supply zero-residue biological control products for environmentally and socially intelligent farming. To further support the pest control needs of growers, we have an on-site diagnostics laboratory to accurately identify pests and a training department to promote their understanding.

Established in 2001 we have rapidly grown into a global biotechnology business, employing leading entomologists and microbiologists to develop solutions to reduce pesticide use and improve soil health and long-term sustainability in agriculture. We develop Integrated Pest Management solutions for our own farming operations across the world and it is this heritage that makes Dudutech unique. As farmers, we believe that successful pest control is more than products; it is a philosophy of growing that is supported by a number of crop management techniques, physical interventions and biological control. Central to this is a ‘prevention mentality’ as opposed to treatment of pest and disease with agrochemicals.

Today, Dudutech is a part of Bioline Agrosciences, and has the largest biological production facility in sub-Saharan Africa, employing, over 350 full-time staff among them experienced leading agronomists, PhD, masters, degree and diploma level scientists. Dudutech now supplies over 50 control products, including 17 biological control products, a plant and soil health range and specially designed traps, with more always in the pipeline. Dudutech has three production sites in Naivasha, Kenya: 14 ha of outdoor insect production, two dedicated indoor insectaries, and state of the art fungus and nematode production facilities. The outdoor insect production sites are based around the equator which provides a perfect climate for a year-round supply of predators.
