Digital, classroom and bespoke

Bionema, a UK based BioProtection (Biopesticide) technology developer, has launched digital, classroom and bespoke training courses to educate end-users, distributors and consultants on the effective use of BioProtection products as an alternative to chemical pest control.

The developer says many end users are not fully familiar with the effective use of biocontrol agents – such as nematodes fungi, bacteria, viruses and beneficial insects and need a better understanding of how best to apply them, as the way they are stored, handled, and applied are important considerations and can result in improved efficacy.

Bionema say their courses have been developed to maximise the efficacy of biological products in a learning environment that suits customer needs and ensures product success.

They says their digital training courses are designed to allow self-paced learning in the delegate’s own time. These courses have been written with the needs of commercial distributors and end users in mind.

Delegates can also learn in a classroom format and a bespoke version can be designed to reflect a client’s environment, knowledge and individual needs. Each course is worth 12 BASIS or 4 NRoSO CPD points.

These courses include presentations, practical workshops and demonstrations of different BioProtection products. 

Dr Minshad Ansari, founder and CEO of Bionema said, “These courses have been designed for those who are new to BioProtection or who would like to refresh their knowledge. For example, learners will receive a complete introduction of the use of entomopathogenic nematodes as well as an introduction to pest identification, product formulations and application.

“By having a better understanding on how to use the product correctly, growers we have worked with have already seen a 30-40% uplift in effective pest and disease control, using BioProtection products, which makes the additional knowledge found in these courses invaluable.”

Bionema is inviting training providers who would like to partner in the delivery of digital courses. The current courses include:

  • Course 1 – Application of entomopathogenic nematodes for insect pest control
  • Course 2 – Application of BioProtection products for pests and diseases control
  • Course 3 – Application of beneficial biocontrol agents for insect pest control
