About Bionema

Bionema is a leading biopesticide technology developer.  We create chemical-free pest management solutions for the horticulture, turf and landscape, and forestry sectors.

We have over 30 years’ experience in research, development and commercialisation of biopesticides.

The biopesticides we develop are natural products which use microorganisms (fungi, bacteria and nematodes) to protect crops from insect damage, reducing the use of synthetic pesticides and enhancing increasing crop yields.

As one of the very few organisations who specialise in chemical-free crop protection, our aim is to help reduce the use of synthetic pesticides which harm the environment and negatively impact on human health

Our products include Bionema’s Unique Tri-Component system which incorporates the NemaTrident™ nematode products, and our newly launched Nemaspreader™.  The Nemaspreader™ improves nematode dispersal and movement, helping the nematode to find its target host in soil or plant growing media more effectively.

As well as developing our own range of biopesticides Bionema also supports researchers, developers and manufacturers of biopesticide products with the following:

  • Strain identification, selection and improvement
  • Production, formulation and application
  • Analytical and R&D solutions
  • Quality assessment of biological products
  • Supporting registration of biocontrol agents
  • Product efficacy testing
  • Knowledge transfer

Bionema are based in Swansea University with a highly experienced team and access to well-equipped GEP accredited laboratories.
