SUSTAINABLE STORAGE OF GRAINS BY IMPLEMENTING A NOVEL PROTECTANT AND A VERSATILE APPLICATION TECHNOLOGY

Project description

Innovative solution to protect grains from pests

As insect pests can cause spoilage, extensive post-harvest losses and consequently financial losses, plant protection products (PPP) are widely used in the storage of grain. In the EU, however, increased insecticide resistance creates an urgent demand for targeted solutions against insect development at all stages, especially the larval stage. The EU-funded novIGRain project will develop a new type of PPP for larvicide treatment combined with versatile dual application technology. Research will confirm that the use of the new larvicide active substance and formulation as a grain storage PPP is in line with EU regulations. With the novel grain protection insecticide and application technology, the project will effectively prevent and lessen insecticide resistance in the EU, offering a product of improved safety for consumers' health and the environment.
