Terramera is a sustainable agriculture clean tech company, developing safe and effective plant-based replacements to conventional chemical pesticides and fertilizers. The company was founded on the idea that natural plant-based pest control can be more effective, economical, and efficient than using synthetic chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Terramera uses technology and natural materials to produce revolutionary products that help people live healthier, make clean food affordable, and feed the world. Terramera's initial products have been fast-tracked by the USDA and the state of California, and the company acquired the only US-EPA approved producer of cold-pressed neem -- the active ingredient used in the company's first products. Terramera's consumer products include Proof Spray, the only plant-based, 100 percent effective and EPA-registered bed bug and dust mite spray available.
