AgroPy Ltd. is a growing manufacturing company where the basis of our business has been to use Rwanda based product development to address local challenges. We are focussed on offering quality products and our commitment to our market is that we can deliver quality pesticide solutions today and we will continue to provide them to satisfy the needs of our market.
In the past, Pyrethrum extract was entirely for export with little direct benefit for the local market. Worse still, the farmers that grew this natural product would use synthetic pesticides to protect their flowers. We saw a need that had to be fulfilled and AgroPy now takes that natural extract and refines it into numerous natural and eco-friendly products which are used in Rwanda and the region. Our intervention creates a sustainable ecosystem for farmers and consumers and contributes to the national economy significantly.
General Manager, Agropy Ltd
To become internationally renowned as a producer of premium organically produced insecticides that positively impact the end user in the agricultural, horticultural, veterinary and public health industries.
To add value to Rwandan Pyrethrum and other Nature leveraged products
AgroPy Ltd (Formerly Agropharm Africa Ltd) was established in 2011 in Musanze, Northern Province, Rwanda. AgroPy Ltd benefits from having refined top quality Pyrethrum Pale Extract locally available from Horizon Group’s subsidiary SOPYRWA. AgroPy’s modern manufacturing facilities produce both liquid and powder products which have a key part to play in Integrated Pest Management IPM and organic programmes. Such products allow farmers to supply clean food produce which leads to a healthier population. AgroPy also supplies consumer and public health pesticides for the control of flies, mosquitos and crawling insect pests.
Since 2012, AgroPy Ltd has received attestation by ECOCERT under European Union regulations EC No. 834/2007 & 889/2008 for Pyrethrum 5EW. This product is of huge benefit to coffee farmers in the control of the Antestia Beetle. Organic insecticides allow farmers to benefit from the opportunity to supply organic produce at premium prices.
AgroPy has the objective of providing pest control products that meet customer needs in the agriculture, horticulture and public health sectors. The focus is on eco-friendly products designed for powerful pest control with minimum impact on the environment. Organic pesticides benefit farmers financially because premium prices are paid for organic produce.
