BioControl Solutions in a Complex Agricultural Environment


Nature's most efficient problem solvers are at work all around us every day, yet they are unseen to the naked eye. These biological powerhouses, made up of bacteria, enzymes, fungi, signal molecules, and yeasts carefully balance complex environmental social and economic factors to help us meet the needs of today without compromising our future ability to meet those demands. Looking to nature to solve agriculture’s most difficult pest challenges is just bio-logical. The focus of this webinar is to explore how biologicals are used to help protect our crops from pathogens and pest pressures in a truly effective and sustainable fashion. As leaders in biologicals, Novozymes brings bio-control solutions to the market, backed by precise science, sound agronomy, and relevant data. This webinar explores, in depth, the modes of action of microbes and how they match agronomic fits and benefits to biologically control various pests. Scientific and field data is shared to back these claims. We look to the future and review preliminary work on our new biocontrol microbes and our revolutionary enzyme biocontrol technology. The future of agriculture is biological we look forward to share our biocontrol solutions in this webinar.
