Indo-German environmentally benign pesticide project launched
A four-year Indo-German project for the development of environmentally benign crop protection products has been initiated. The project involves industry and government institutions and aims to develop products using a combination of copper, chitosan and biological control agents. It has been named "Cuchi-BCA”. The partners hope to make the products available to resource-poor farmers in rural India, expanding it eventually to include Africa and South America.
