Breaking the Chemical Cycle In
Biological control strategy focuses on one organism against another, the goal is to reduce a pest population to a level manageable for farmers. Pest management is the reason for biological control. In Nicaragua, this existed in a minimum, the only alternatives available to farmers were chemicals with low, medium and high toxicity and residue. Biological control is a knowledge-based approach, effective use of this strategy requires extensive knowledge about a pest and its biological control agent(s), reason why Biotor Labs was established, focusing on massive production of highly effective biological controls, training farmers in their use, and the benefits of these interactions.
