Belgian startup Aphea.Bio has launched into the biopesticides and biostimulants sector with €9 million ($10.07m) in funding from a Series A funding round and a local R&D grant.

The startup spun out of Vlaams Instituut voor Biotechnologie (VIB), the life sciences research institute founded by the Flemish Government in 1995. Research from Ghent University and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven) also contributed to the new company. 

Aphea.Bio is aiming to develop sustainable agricultural products using natural microorganisms with the aim of increasing crop yields and improving protection against fungal diseases
