High Quality products for crop nutrition and crop protection

Sequencing our NoFly

Published on

NoFly is an emblematic product of Futureco Bioscience. It was registered as a phytosanitary product at the European level in 2013, to combat whitefly in certain greenhouse crops. Currently, Futureco Bioscience is expanding the uses of NoFly to other pests (thrips) and in the open field. In addition, we are working on the registration of an oily dispersion formulation that is more stable, more penetrating, and easy to apply. The spores of the entomopathogenic fungus Paecilomyces...

INNOLIVAR project for the control of the olive fruit fly: soil persistence of the bioinsecticide formulations

Soil persistence evaluation of biopesticide formulations

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...

New success for Futureco Bioscience researchers, who deposit in GenBank - the NIH (National Institutes of Health) public database of genetic sequences, and reference for laboratories worldwide - the first complete genetic sequence of a Microbacterium esteraromaticum strain. To date, only scattered pieces of the genome of this species have been sequenced. Futureco Bioscience researchers have succeeded in finishing the puzzle and assembling the genome of M. esteraromaticum B24 into a single...

The Research and Development Department of Futureco Bioscience has collected in the Ecoletter 27 the first results of the evaluation of bioinsecticide prototypes for the control of the olive fruit fly in semi-field conditions. The olive fruit fly, Bactrocera oleae, is a serious phytosanitary problem for olive trees and olive production worldwide. This particular study is placed in the framework of the INNOLIVAR project in collaboration with the University of Cordoba (UCO), according to the...

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...

Bioinsecticide NOFLY WP: use extended by new authorizations.

Frankliniella occidentalis

Frankliniella occidentalis

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...
