Conventional pesticides—which generally aim to kill—aren’t the only weapons available to fight crop pests. More farmers are using biopesticides derived from natural materials such as plants and minerals. Biopesticides biodegrade in nature, won’t hurt humans, and may reverse pest-resistance caused by synthetic pesticides. The market is paying attention. The global biopesticide market is projected to reach $8.5 billion by 2025, and is a big reason for the increase in organic farming and market demand for sustainable products. This webinar will discuss developments in biologicals for crop protection and natural pest control, and how new technologies are dramatically transforming the market. Speakers include biologicals industry expert Philip Rollinson, Certis Head of Innovation Jacques Haverlant, and Boundless Senior Research Analyst Fernanda Avila Swinburn.
