International Biocontrol Manufacturers Association is the voice of the Biocontrol technologies industry and represents all its members to promote them and bring to the market via proportionate regulation these green innovative and effective technologies for sustainable agriculture, allowing the farmers to grow healthy, productive and profitable crops.
Our technologies are inspired by, harnessed or harvested from nature. These green biocontrol solutions protect the crops and environment of today and importantly tomorrow, and are the first choice for controlling pests and diseases sustainably.
IBMA provides a platform for its members to express and share their views to further shape one common positioning towards institutional actors, policy makers, media and the public.
All our activities aim at showing that biocontrol technologies are already a reality in agriculture and horticulture, and intensifying their use.
For this purpose IBMA actively shares its expertise in the field (through trainings and information) to stimulate both business development and skills of its members’ staff. Our members are strongly advised to cooperate and collaborate through beneficial joint projects and sharing of information.
Moreover, IBMA actively sets up and implements ethical professional rules. We also ensure that product quality standards required by the market are met. We also provide our members with a jobs portal to find adequate human resources.
