Biologicals are already used as part of an integrated pest management (IPM) strategy. They can form one part of a solution for farmers that offers new opportunities to prevent the development of resistance, improve soil health and reduce residues.
Example: When a biological is used with a plant protection product, the biological helps to prevent the development of resistance. Biostimulants help to improve crop health and tolerance to abiotic factors such as heat and drought stress. It can help the crop cope with changing weather conditions.
