WHAT ARE BIOCONTROL TECHNOLOGIES ?

Biocontrol technologies originate from nature – directly or identical to nature if synthetized -. They are used to manage pests, weeds and diseases in agriculture as well as home, garden and forestry. Our Biocontrol solutions achieve the sustainability goals that consumers urgently demand for food safety, human health and protection of the environment.

BIOCONTROL TECHNOLOGIES DIVIDED INTO FOUR CATEGORIES

Microbials are based on microorganisms, including but not limited to bacteria, fungi, protozoans, viruses, viroids, mycoplasmas, and may include entire microorganisms, living and dead cells, any associated microbial metabolites, fermentation materials and cell-fragments.

Semiochemicals are substances emitted by plants, animals and other organisms used for intra-species and/or inter-species communication and have a target-specific and non-toxic mode of action.

Natural Substances consist of one or more components that originate from nature, including but not limited to: plants, algae/microalgae, animals, minerals, bacteria, fungi, peptides, protozoans, viruses, viroids and mycoplasmas. They can either be sourced from nature or are nature identical if synthetized. This definition excludes semiochemicals and microbials.

Invertebrate Biocontrol Agents (also called macrobials) are natural enemies such as insect, mite and nematode species providing control of pest populations through predation or parasitism.

SUBSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

Biocontrol Technologies are crucial solutions needed for sustainable agriculture for future generations.

Innovative and effective Green Technologies, including biocontrol solutions, should be used 1st.

substainable agriculture for all: from the field to the fork, from farmers to consumers

Sustainable, innovative and effective biocontrol technologies for the farmers to grow healthy, environment-friendly, productive and profitable crops, answering to the consumers’ demand.
