Bye-Bye Bugs: The Booming Biopesticides Market
The first recorded use of pesticides was about 4500 years ago by Sumerians who used sulphur compounds to control insects and mites. Over the past several millennia, humans have continued to invent new ways of controlling unwanted pests in agriculture, to great benefit to society at large. The 1970s and 1980s saw the introduction of the world’s greatest selling herbicide, glyphosate. However, as concerns around the health and environmental impacts of these synthetic compounds grew, a whole new market of biopesticides emerged — naturally-derived compounds that offer equal or better performance and preserve human and environmental health. According to Bloomberg, the biopesticides market is forecasted to reach $13B by the end of 2029.
This webinar will provide insights into the rapidly growing market for biopesticides. Featured speakers include biopesticide expert Philip Rollinson, Marrone Bio Innovations Chief Sustainability Officer Keith Pitts, and Boundless Senior Research Analyst Fernanda Avila Swinburn. You won’t want to miss this topical discussion on the booming biopesticides market.
