An Introduction To Biopesticide Development

4-week online course | 1 hour per week

4 May - 5 June 2020

Online Academy

Consumers are becoming more environmentally aware and as a result farmers must look to reduce their use of harmful chemicals and increase their use of pesticide alternatives like biopesticides. This has led to the biopesticides becoming one of the fastest growing plant protection products, with growth rates three times greater than for conventional chemical pesticides.

This online course has been designed for those who are new to biopesticides or who would like to refresh their knowledge. You will receive a complete introduction to biopesticide development, modes-of-action, formulations, and the processes involved. As the industry grows professionals need to learn how biopesticides are made and their mode of action.

If you would like to start the course sooner than advertised simply get in contact with our training consultants by emailing [email protected] and we will arrange this for you as soon as possible.

Dr. Harry Teicher is an independent consultant with over 20 years of AgChem and BioScience R&D Management and Support Experience. Harry gained his PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Copenhagen and worked in a wide range of roles in R&D specialising in biological crop protection strategies. Until 2018 he held various Management roles at Cheminova and FMC whilst also acting as a guest lecturer in Plant Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Plant Pathology and Crop Protection.
