Synergy between organisations sharing common goals often leads to significant advances in society. In this context, we are pleased to announce our collaboration with CABI BioProtection Portal, a step forward in our joint quest for a more environmentally friendly agriculture.
What is the CABI BioProtection Portal?
CABI’s BioProtection Portal is an open access tool that has revolutionised the way farmers and farm advisors deal with pests in their crops. Focused on providing information on biocontrol products and biopesticides registered in different countries, it aims to empower the farming community to identify, obtain and effectively apply natural solutions against pests. The platform, available in different formats and devices, is enriched with a comprehensive resources section for those who wish to learn more about bioprotection.
What is CABI?
CABI, an intergovernmental, non-profit organisation, is dedicated to improving lives around the world through the application of scientific knowledge to challenges in agriculture and the environment. Guided by the interests of the 49 member countries that influence its operations, CABI works with scientists in a global network of centres to provide information and practical solutions to all people. Founded under a United Nations treaty, the website is governed by equal cooperation among member countries in its governance and strategic orientation. Already active in 38 countries, it includes more than 4,000 biosecurity products covering more than 940 crops and 2,200 pests.
Why use the CABI BioProtection Portal?
In the last years, the biosecurity industry has made significant advances, bringing safer and more environmentally friendly alternatives for pest control in agriculture. However, lack of information remains a barrier to widespread adoption.
Under this situation is where the CABI BioProtection Portal comes into play, closing the gap between awareness and action by providing information and establishing direct connections between producers and bioprotection manufacturers.
Who is the CABI BioProtection Portal directed to?
The website has not only become a valuable tool for producers and agricultural advisors seeking low toxicity solutions, but also for those wishing to access higher value markets such as organic products. Government regulators, private sector decision-makers, and manufacturers of biocontrol products, also look at the CABI BioProtection Portal as a vital source of information and collaboration.
