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...

Genes underpinning peach tree adaptation to climate change

In a new paper, a research team led by the Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI) has identified genes that could allow peach trees and their wild relatives to tolerate stressful conditions and adapt to climate change

In a new paper, a research team led by the Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI) has identified genes that could allow peach trees and their wild relatives to tolerate stressful conditions and adapt to climate change

Published on

Since the beginning of time there have been changes in the environment, and all beings on the planet have been adapting to them in order to survive. These changes are reflected in the genome and explain why the same tree in different climatic zones can change and produce fruits diverse, for example, in their taste or size. At the same time, climate change has made many crops less productive, highlighting the urgent need to make them more resilient to climatic stresses. Many studies have...

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...
