UK storage pest consortium receives funding

A consortium led by UK pest control company Exosect (Southampton, Hampshire) to identify a fungal pathogen for the control of a range of key stored grain insect pests has received funding of some £250,000 ($381,425). The investment has been provided by UK non-departmental public body Technology Strategy Board’s “New Approaches to Crop Protection” funding competition, which was launched last year ( Agrow No 578, p 13). The product is based on the entomopathogenic fungus, Beauvaria bassiana. The funding is expected to enable the consortium to complete product development, create data for the regulatory authorities, and bring the product to market.
