Climate smart agriculture combines a range of practices and technologies. It increases agricultural productivity sustainably. It enhances our ability to adapt to climate change. It also reduces or removes greenhouse gases where possible. 

Biocontrol products are an important part of climate smart agriculture. As is integrated pest management (IPM). Investors and global food companies are looking to biocontrol products. They see these technologies as nature-positive solutions and an investment opportunity.
