Sept. 2015 – This feature will look at new insights into how biological control really works, and where they can take us.
Sept. 2015 – In virtually all areas of horticulture today, there is a place for both biopesticides and traditional agrochemicals. Maximum benefits can be achieved through the integration of the two strategies in an approach known as Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
Aug. 12, 2015, Victor, New York – Dr. Daniel Peck has been named product development manager at BioWorks, home to the RootShield®, BotaniGard®, CEASE®, Molt-X®, MilStop® and SuffOil-X® brands of biopesticides, and Verdanta® and ON-Gard™ brands of biofertilizers.

February 2015 – An increasing number of greenhouse growers are using biocontrol as a primary component of their pest management strategy. However, as the number of simultaneous biocontrol agent (bca) releases grows, so does the complexity of insect population dynamics, and related management decisions.
Jan. 15, 2015, Vineland Station, Ont. — Successful biocontrol programs are dependent on a number of factors, but good quality natural enemies are fundamental. However, as living organisms, biocontrol products are subject to variability caused by various factors, starting at the insectary where they are reared through to the crop where they are released.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is always a “hot” topic.  Growers of vegetables, flowers and ornamentals are always interested in the new biocontrol agents being introduced.
