Main Description

The Biopesticides Manual provides information resources and technical advice in order to support the deployment of biopesticides. It is a one-stop-shop to address the information needs of the key groups who are responsible for selecting, sourcing and using biopesticides in the tobacco production system.

Biopesticides are a key component of integrated pest management (IPM) in tobacco. IPM seeks to reduce the risk of harm to people and the environment. When used in conjunction with good crop management, biopesticides can help to keep pest levels under control, reducing the need to apply conventional pesticides.
