Australia targets nematode-based molluscicide

The Australian Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is seeking a company to commercialise a nematode-based molluscicide. Research being conducted at the Australian Charles Sturt University has identified several prospective nematode species that have shown “basic proof of concept” and progressed to field trials, the GRDC points out. The research project is not due to be completed until July 2011, so there will be the opportunity for collaboration between the commercial partner and the University, the GRDC adds. The licensee would have exclusive rights to produce and market the product for slug and snail control. Expressions of interest can be made until November 9th. The GRDC is seeking to fund the development of a range of biopesticides ( Agrow No 599, p 17).
