Get the most from your biological pest control systems
How? Because these are living organisms – nematodes, fungi, bacteria, beneficial insects and others – that need an understanding of how best to use them.

The way they are stored, handled and applied are all important, without proper care they may not deliver the efficacy you need.

These training courses can help you maximise the efficacy of your biological controls by providing you with the information you need to succeed.

Who would benefit from these courses?
Anyone in the Agriculture, Horticulture including Turf & Amenity and Forestry sectors, whether already using biopesticides, or preparing to switch from chemicals and want to learn more the latest best practice solutions to ensure maximum efficiency of natural control systems.

Training Objectives

  • Develop – a complete understanding of biopesticides, entomopathogenic nematodes and beneficial insects.
  • Learn – to apply biopesticides, nematodes and beneficial insects through a practical integrated management system.
  • What – are the different products and their recommended targets?
  • Perform – quality assessment of each product before application.
  • Understand – product labelling to get maximum benefits.
  • How – to gain the best results.

These natural products are just as efficient as industrialised chemical pesticides – by following the best practice for storage, management and delivery systems, tested over the last ten years by Bionema.

With changes in legislation already on the way, we have developed a specialist training programme to help maximise the potential of this biologically benign way to protect your fruit and vegetables.

Bionema practical training – Based on science
Bionema training programmes are developed by biological experts with years of practical experience in maximising the benefits of biological controls.

We focus on the needs of your business to help you achieve immediate beneficial results.

A ‘hands on’ approach provides practical knowledge and advice in the use of biological pesticides to maximise field effectiveness – not theoretical, academic lectures.

Training courses – at Bionema or your own business
All our courses are based at our modern facility within the Institute of Life Science 1 on the Swansea University Singleton campus, using our own trial outdoor trial plots and glasshouse facilities to demonstrate how natural controls are developed and used.

We offer both on and offsite training for individuals or groups – of up to 20 people – which can save time and money by addressing your team’s specific needs – finding solutions to any real problems within your growing programmes.
