Published on

Excellent news, as anticipated a few weeks ago, about our product NOFLY WP. NOFLY WP is a bioinsecticide based on spores of the fungus Paecilomyces fumosoroseus strain FE 9901 that has been developed in Futureco Bioscience for the control of different species of white flies and thrips. NOFLY WP was first authorised provisionally in Belgium in 2009 and the active substance was approved by the European Union under Regulation EU 378/2013 in April 2013. Since then, its phytosanitary registration...

Covid-19 has shown how human health is intimately linked to the relationship of humans with their natural environment. As we invade nature and deplete vital habitats, an increasing number of species are at risk and that includes humanity and the future we want. Biodiversity is the variety and variability of life on Earth and can be a measure of variation on the genetic, species, and ecosystem level. Estimates on the number of Earth's current species range from 10 million to 14 million, of...

The use of biopesticides based on biological control agents (BCAs) of microbial origin (fungi and bacteria) antagonists of crop diseases, are an excellent and sustainable alternative to reduce global dependence on conventional phytosanitary products (chemicals), which can be dangerous for the environment and human health. In different trials carried out by researchers from the R&D Department of Futureco Bioscience in climatic chamber and greenhouse, the efficacy of the B2017 strain of...

Soil persistence evaluation of biopesticide formulations

Published on

Efficacy is certainly the main factor to be considered when marketing a plant protection product, but not the only one. The persistence in the different elements of the environment (soil, plant, surface water and groundwater. Etc.) is also an important factor: it determines the environmental impact of the product and, sometimes, can influence its effectiveness. Determining the persistence of products in the soil is especially important in the case of those that are directed at pathogens that...
