Futureco Bioscience's commitment to R+D+i continues to be a fundamental factor in the company's competitiveness and economic growth, and ENAC (National Accreditation Agency) accredited certification 2019 for four of the projects currently underway validates and reinforces the importance of this effort. Designed by the government to encourage investment in Research and Development through tax relief (as set out in Article 35 of the Corporate Tax Act), ENAC certification not only recognizes the...

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...

New results from the INNOLIVAR project, about the evaluation of bioinsecticide prototypes for the control of the Olive Fruit Fly. The research and Development Department of Futureco Bioscience has collected in the EcoLetter28 the results of the field trial. In this part of the study, microbial formulations, which have already been tested under semi-field conditions (EcoLetter27), were evaluated in several olive tree plots of the "Biancolilla" variety: "conidia" in the form of wettable powder...

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...

It is time to act, and Futureco Bioscience, in line with the "Instructions for diagnostic tests for the detection of COVID-19 in companies" published by the Spanish Ministry within the framework of the Plan for the transition to a new normality, has already begun to carry out PCR tests for the detection of Covid-19 on all workers who voluntarily wish to do so. This measure aims at the early detection of any case that may have an active infection and that may therefore transmit the disease....
