Published:

The biocontrol market has been growing significantly over the past few years. With increased direction from the authorities and growing demand for sustainable agriculture, it is certain that it will continue to experience unprecedented growth. There is, however, uncertainty from within the industry on how to get products effectively into the market. Regulation, testing, and registration, as well as efficacy and scaling up production continue to prove major challenges.
