Bionema has developed and launched the first biopesticide application digital training courses.

Biopesticides are essentially living organisms, such as nematodes, fungi, bacteria and beneficial insects. It is important to understand how best to use them. The way they are stored, handled and applied is very important. Without proper care, they may not perform as well as they should.

The digital courses are designed to allow learning at your own pace and in your own time, giving you the flexibility to use the courses around your commitments. They are aimed at commercial distributors and end-users, such as growers, farmers, greenkeepers, course managers, groundsman, foresters, agronomists, and integrated pest management practitioners. The courses are aimed at maximising the potential of their highly effective biological-based products, which protect and naturally enhance crops.

Digital Training Courses

Consumers are becoming more environmentally aware and as a result, end-user must look to reduce their use of harmful pesticides and increase alternatives like biopesticides. This has led to the biopesticides becoming one of the fastest-growing plant protection products, with growth rates 3-4 times greater than for conventional pesticides. 

The certified digital training courses consist of three modules:

Module 1

Entomopathogenic nematodes

Entomopathogenic fungus

Module 2

Fungi, Bacteria, and viruses

Professional Growers and Gardeners

Module 3

Predators, parasitoids and mites
