What are biopesticides?

Biopesticides are the natural alternative to toxic chemical pesticides – plants, bacteria, fungi and minerals for the control of insect pests which attack food and other crops of all kinds.  They are safe, non-toxic to users and consumers, decompose rapidly and can be targeted at specific pests to avoid harming beneficial insects.

Developing unique biopesticides

At Bionema, we develop innovative biocontrol products based on highly virulent strains of natural occurring micro-organism to customer requirements.

With unrivalled specialist expertise in microbial control agents (fungi and bacteria), biocontrol agents (entomopathogenic nematodes, predators, parasitoids and mites), Semio- chemicals (pheromones) and botanicals (plant derived compounds) – our aim is to make your project a success.

Through the subculturing method, we can quickly eliminate natural agents those are unstable, less virulence and produce fewer spores. Using these techniques, we have screen more than 500 natural microorganisms. Resulted numerous potential candidate performs commercial value against insects and mites.

Our research aims to develop sustainable, environmentally friendly products and strategies for the control of arthropod pests of global importance. We focus on entomopathogenic fungi (Metarhizium, Beauveria, Isria (=Paecilomyces), nematodes (Heterorhabditis, Steinernema species), botanicals and semiochemicals for pest control.  Nematode with fungi or low dose of chemicals are to create synergy in integrated pest management strategy.

With 35 years combined experience developing and testing natural, microbial control agents for crop pest control and reducing toxic chemical pesticide residues in food, Bionema provides a significant contribution to global food safety and security.

Pre-commercialisation services

Biopesticide trials, development and implementation, consultancy, analytical and R&D solutions, glasshouse testing and field trials aim to increase the efficiency of biopesticide application and guarantee product quality.

Bionema expertise in biopesticide help to meet customers’ needs and possess enhanced performance features, such as effectiveness, shelf life and compatibility with other integrated pest management components and ease of use.
