Biological Crop Protection

Consumers are demanding food with fewer chemical residues and producers are consistently seeking ways to preserve the effectiveness of their pest control tools. Becker Underwood has developed a biological product lineup that provides growers with foliar and drench applied crop protection solutions to help with residue and resistance management. These tools help control a variety of pests and diseases, often in combination with crop protection products, for both greenhouse and open field growers when used as part ofintegrated management programs.

Becker Underwood’s acquisition of BCP South Africa brought additional products to help meet the strong demand of growers to utilize biological tools alongside conventional chemicals in integrated spray regimes. Today, Becker Underwood provides the leading fungal bio-control solution for locusts in Africa, Australia, and Asia.

Becker Underwood is the world’s largest producer of beneficial nematodes, which work well in management programs to control insects such as thrips, weevils, and codling moth. We also provide a range of beneficial nematodes that control slugs.

Our biological control formulations pass the rigorous standards of storage stability demanded by the industry. The strains used have been screened for their robustness and high efficacy.

Several of our bio-fungicides and bio-insecticides are registered, or in process of being registered, in multiple countries. A strong R&D pipeline will lead to many more exciting products in this portfolio.

Becker Underwood offers an effective biological product for preventative control of soil borne pathogens like Rhizoctonia solani and Fusarium spp.
