The global growth of the use of biopesticides highlights the importance of the adoption of this protection tool. From 2005 to 2014, the market turnover of biological control showed a growth from US $ 500 million to US $ 2 billion and the projection is that this number doubles by 2020.
 
Biopesticides are important for all agents of the productive chains, in agricultural crops and even livestock, due to the numerous benefits they offer.
 
Producers choose to use biopesticides due to its advantages in terms of safety and flexibility in the application. Biological control also complements chemicals in integrated pest management, minimizing pest resistance in different crops. In the case of fruit, vegetable and ornamental plants, biological control is often the main choice for crop protection.
 
Regarding the main advantages of the industry, the development of a new biological product is considerably lower than that of a chemical, and the use of biological can also serve to extend the life of the chemical.
 
With respect to the market, although consumers do not specifically demand food that has been managed with biological control, the demand for more natural, healthy, sustainable and organic foods is growing. In this way, both the domestic (and mainly) the international market pressure companies to reduce the use of chemical residues in food, which implies in the adoption of alternative inputs, such as biopesticides.
 
In addition to all the advantages that biopesticides offer to chain links and to agribusiness as a whole, they are also beneficial to the environment and to human health.
 
In this context, ABCBio - Brazilian Association of Biopesticides Companies - and Informa Agro will hold the first edition of the Brazilian Forum of Biopesticides, an innovative event with the objective of bringing together the entire production chain to discuss the main guidelines for the strengthening of biopesticides in Brazil.

The organizer offers a special 10% discount for AgroPages readers, associates and partners.
