Safer plant protection products

The increase in devastating crop pests, such as the fall armyworm and tomato pinworm, has led to a growth in pesticide use among smallholder farmers. However, even when used properly pesticides can have a negative impact on human health and the environment. PlantwisePlus will work to ensure farmers have access to affordable, more sustainable plant protection products, such as biocontrol and biopesticides.
