Learning from farmers around the globe inspires us at Provivi. We are rethinking insect pest control, using our pheromones as a natural foundation for sustainable solutions against key insect pests. Meet our farmers in Mexico, Kenya, and Indonesia as they share their struggle against Fall Armyworm and Rice Stemborer.

In unity there is strength.
Felipe operates his family farm, where he started working at age 12 while also going to school. He also has a chiropractic clinic on the farm, following his father and grandfather's footsteps in serving the local community. Felipe grows maize and feed-crops for his farm animals, the most prized of which are his roosters. His maize production is challenged by attacks of Fall Armyworm, forcing him to spray insecticides up to nine times per season. He tries to manage this pest and his output by listening to advice from agronomists. "Spraying less, we will save money and have a better quality of life".
Before the armyworm, you could pay for the childrens school fees.
We produce organic rice to keep our family healthy.
There is no life without the fields.
