Biopesticide use endorsed

The fruit industry has been told to capitalise on the potential use of biopesticides ahead of the forecasted implementation of new EU regulations in spring 2010.

Roma Gwynn of Rationale Biopesticide Consultants told delegates at Fruit Focus that she expected sales of biopesticides, which currently stand at $512 million (£310.2m) a year, to double next year.

Gwynn believes biopesticides are currently underused in the industry, working best as a population management tool as part of a proactive approach before the pest appears.
