SynTech Research has delivered very many successful trials with Biopesticides for the control of pests and diseases. Agents tested include:
Macrobials – Invertebrate Biocontrol Agents (IBCAs) – Insects, mites and entomopathogenic nematodes.
Microbials and Microbial Biocontrol Agents (MBCA) – bacteria, fungi and viruses (and beneficial soil micro-organisms).

Trials are also conducted on Insect pheromones/ semiochemicals.

Studies are conducted on an extensive range of arable and horticultural crops, using its worldwide network field stations in over 30 countries. These include screening and evaluation in laboratories/glasshouses/growth chambers and trials at the field stations and in commercial fields. Techniques include syringe application and chemigation with tailored irrigation systems – flood, sprinkler and drip.
