4-week online academy

Discover the key components used in bioformulations and discuss the trends influencing their development on this interactive digital course

Course Overview

Consumers are becoming more environmentally aware and as a result farmers must look to reduce their use of harmful chemicals and increase their use of pesticide alternatives like biopesticides. This has led to the biopesticides becoming one of the fastest growing plant protection products, with growth rates three times greater than for conventional chemical pesticides.

This online course has been designed for those who are new to biopesticides or who would like to refresh their knowledge. You will receive a complete introduction to biopesticide development, modes-of-action, formulations, and the processes involved. As the industry grows professionals need to learn how biopesticides are made and their mode of action.
