Specialist Biological Pest Control
Training Courses for Growers, Greenkeepers and Foresters

Lantra House, Stoneleigh Park, nr Coventry, Warwickshire, CV8 2LG

Are you getting the most from your biological pest control systems?
The answer is almost certainly not!

Why? 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 will include presentation, practical workshops and demonstration about different biopesticide products and their correct application to help you maximise the efficacy of your biological controls by providing you with the information you need to succeed. Courses are developed by biological experts with years of practical experience in maximising the benefits of biopesticide products in agriculture, horticulture, turf amenity and forestry sectors.

Our three different training courses are taking place on 14th, 15th and 16th March 2018 at LANTRA, Stoneleigh Park. We thought you may be interested in these courses.

Feedback

“After attending a full days training on the application of entomopathogenic nematodes at the University of Swansea with Dr Minshad Ansari, I was very comfortable and confident in using Nematodes to control our Chafer Grub infestation at The Grove. The training was very informative and delivered in a very understanding way. Since following a detailed program which was set up by Dr Ansari with regular site visits we have had remarkable success in our first year of a three-year program. We will continue to work with all at Bionema to educate the turf and amenity industry in the use of nematodes as we have lost all our insecticides for turf and with Dr Ansari’s training and expertise I see no reason why this will not work.”

“I would like to say a big thank you to everyone organising the training course. The training course took place between the 26th and 28th April 2017. I was delighted by the welcoming, the good atmosphere and the professionalism of the 3 days training course. It has been a very good first experience and I strongly recommend these training courses to other biological pesticide users. I really enjoyed the fact that there was no only a theoretical but also a practical experience involved during this 3-day training course.”
