Belgian biological controls specialist, Biobest, has acquired Thika­based pest­control firm Real IPM Kenya. Biobest, a leading global player in pollination and biological pest control, said the acquisition would allow it get a strong foothold in a part of the world where it has no presence. The Kenya firm has a broad market presence in the export­driven flower market and among smallholder grain farmers. Details of the stake and its worth were not disclosed. The transaction is, however, due to close in early 2017 subject to authorisation by the Competition Authority of Kenya and other regulators.
