A portal to support the biological control of pests
The CABI BioProtection Portal is a ground-breaking information resource available in 15 countries across four continents. The portal aids growers and agricultural advisors in identifying, sourcing, and correctly applying non-chemical pest control products. It targets problematic pests in their crops.
Created to be the go-to information resource for identifying and sourcing products for biological pest control, the CABI BioProtection Portal helps growers focus on biological control. It aids in replacing chemical pesticides.
Free to use and accessible on multiple devices, the portal puts valuable information at the fingertips of the people who need it. The joining of the BioAgri Input Producers Association as an Associate helps expand this available knowledge.
The BIPA’s Associate membership enhances the geographical reach of the CABI BioProtection Portal in India. This is particularly useful for farmers seeking information on biopesticides in agriculture.
Biopesticides are highly beneficial in farming and cater to the demands of modern consumers looking for healthier and safer food. They also help growers who need to meet market or export standards and reduce pressure on the environment.
Dr KRK Reddy, President of BIPA, said, “Ours is the oldest professional association of manufacturers of bio agri inputs. It is our privilege to be associated with CABI to progress the cause of promotion of bio agri input in India.”
Dr Venkatesh Devanur, Secretary of BIPA, said, “Our endeavour is to promote production of residue free food and improve soil health. CABI’s association with our organisation will make a positive difference in this effort.”
