Barrix Agro Sciences seeks to develop technology enabled cost-effective solutions to reduce the use of pesticides in crop production, thereby increasing pre and post harvest yield. The company's pheromone products include the Barrix Fruit fly traps that target 83 species of pests in fruit crops and the Barrix vegetable fly traps that target 226 species of pests in vegetable crops. Barrix Agro Sciences has served about 15,000 farmers and sold around 50,000 traps in 16 districts of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu. It distributes its products through live demos and workshops for awareness building. The company plans to launch pheromone traps to protect agriculturally important crops like rice, wheat, sugarcane, brinjal, and cotton in the future.
