We are delighted to announce that the BioAgri Input Producers Association (BIPA) has joined the CABI BioProtection Portal as an Associate. Based in India, the BioAgri Input Producers Association is a body of corporates and professionals engaged in the manufacturing, marketing, research and academic activities related to biological inputs for sustainable agriculture and non-chemical pest control.
The body represents the collective voice, strategy and action plan for making agriculture profitable through biological applications. Visitors of the CABI BioProtection Portal will benefit from the association’s broad network and expertise in biopesticides in agriculture and knowledge sharing about the bio-industry.
A portal to support the biological control of pests
The CABI BioProtection Portal is a ground-breaking information resource available in 15 countries across four continents. It helps growers and agricultural advisors to identify, source and correctly apply non-chemical pest control products against problematic pests in their crops.
Created to become the go-to information resource for those looking to identify and source products for the biological control of pests, the CABI BioProtection Portal helps growers focus on the biological control of pests and replace chemical pesticides.
Free to use and accessible on multiple devices, the portal puts valuable information at the fingertips of the people who need it. The joining of the BioAgri Input Producers Association as an Associate helps expand this available knowledge.
The BIPA’s Associate membership also boosts the geographical reach of the CABI BioProtection Portal in India, which is particularly useful for farmers wanting to learn more about biopesticides in agriculture.
Biopesticides are highly beneficial in farming and cater to the demands of modern consumers looking for healthier and safer food. They also help growers who need to meet market or export standards and reduce pressure on the environment.
Dr KRK Reddy, President of BIPA, said, “Ours is the oldest professional association of manufacturers of bio agri inputs. It is our privilege to be associated with CABI to progress the cause of promotion of bio agri input in India.”
Dr Venkatesh Devanur, Secretary of BIPA, said, “Our endeavour is to promote production of residue free food and improve soil health. CABI’s association with our organisation will make a positive difference in this effort.”
