Development of a new bioinsecticide for the control of Banana Black Weevil

Published on

FUTURECO BIOSCIENCE has successfully completed a 3-year research project to develop a novel biopesticide based on Metarhizium anisopliae.

The work comprised four stages:

.- Screening and selection of a native strain of M. anisopliae from the Canary Islands; development of commercial prototypes; risk assessment; efficacy studies.

.- The results of this project are a strong base for further commercial development, although new studies are needed. In the near future, banana growers will have an ecological solution based on the local bio-diversity to control black weevil.
