Summary in English
Biopesticides are living organisms and/or their natural products that control or suppress pest populations such as insects, weeds, and plant diseases. Greater awareness and demand for safer foods and the environment have spurred interest by the public for reduced risk pest control products. Recently, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) has invested in a National Biopesticide Programme for discovery and development of new biopesticide products for registration in Canada and worldwide.
