Commercializing Biological Pest Control in Honduras

Chemical pesticides can be expensive and harmful to the environment and human health. Partnering for Innovation's newest partner is addressing these issue by scaling up the use of biological pest control in Honduras.


By increasing production and sale of beneficial nematodes, Zamorano University will enable small producers to access this bio-control at a much lower cost than a synthetic chemical product. By the end of the partnership, 9,000 hectares of smallholder land will use biological pest control and Zamorano will have built a sustainable distribution channel for these products.
