Together with his wife Jenny, a specialist teaching social studies based chemist Dr Hubertus Kleeberg 1985, the company Trifolio-M GmbH, Lahnau in central Hesse. In the foreground from the beginning to extract plant substances, such as green chlorophyll leaves. Soon the range of products expanded to include natural substances found in biological plant protection use. As an example, the isolation and distribution of insect pheromones can be noted that integrated in pheromone traps, trap specific insect pests.

For the development of various products has Trifolio-M GmbH preparation and analytical GLP-certified laboratories, and how to extract plant substances in pilot plant and the implementation of efficacy studies in the laboratory and field. The company employs 10 staff. Since the company not only trade, but in particular also has dedicated research and development that is in close contact with many scientific research institutes and companies at home and abroad. Some of these collaborations have been funded by the Federal Ministry for Research and Technology, German Federal Foundation for Environment and the European Union. He also organized Trifolio-M GmbH since 1992 seminar on "Practice oriented results on use and production of Nim-Ingredients and Pheromones." While new developments in the field of biological control are presented and discussed. So far, over 500 scientists from some 35 countries have participated in seminars that have become established as an international forum for the development of alternatives for plant protection.

The use of Nim-tree (Azadirachta indicators) as starting material for isolation bioinsecticides Trifolio-M GmbH came through cooperation with the University of Giessen in 1988. Taught there until 1997 Professor Heinrich Schmutterer, "European" discoverer of the properties of the Nim tree. In tropical tree Nim is a native of Myanmar and India and has been used for 4,500 years as a medical and pesticides.
