Summary

Table of Contents

BioControl Agents (BCAs) are beneficial organisms that assist farmers in pest control and plant growth. BCA is one of the emerging trends in the crop protection industry supporting the wider trend of non-chemical pest control. This market encompasses a wide variety of natural enemies which combat different pests in several crop fields. Providers of these products assist the growers in choosing and release of specific BioControl product. Increasing concern on soil fertility, environmental and food contamination related to excess use of chemical pesticides is one of the primary factors that have been driving the growth of this market. However, lack of enough awareness and knowledge among growers regarding these environmental friendly and effective pest control mechanisms hinders the reach of BioControl products.
