Our Team

Locus AG puts growers first.

We go beyond creating top-performing agricultural biologicals. We’re the boots on the ground partner in both good and challenging conditions.

Shake hands with the Locus AG team

While most business isn’t done with a simple handshake anymore, it’s the mentality Locus AG takes. At Locus AG, we go beyond creating top-performing biologicals. We stand by our word. We honor our commitments. And we deliver the innovative products needed to maximize yields and profits. We’re small enough to be flexible and adapt quickly. Yet we’re large enough to provide the innovation farmers need to succeed.
