The ONSSA (National Health Security Office of Food products), granted two product certifications for the Moroccan market as insecticides (biopesticides).
These are the products of our partner FUTURECO BIOSCIENCE : FUTURECO NoFly WP and Mycotrol ES, marketed and distributed by ÉLÉPHANT VERT Morocco.
FUTURECO NoFly WP, applied to 200 g per 100 L of water, acts against thrips and protects pepper, thanks to the fungus Paecilomyces fumosoroseus. Mycotrol ES, meanwhile applied to 125 ml per 100 L, acts against whitefly and protects tomato, thanks to the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana.
These products will bring to Moroccan farmers important benefits :
– They are non-toxic;
– They are exempted from MRL (Maximum Residue Limit);
– They do not require pre-harvest;
– Contribute to the management of chemical insecticide resistance problem;
– They are suitable for integrated pest management (IPM, Integrated Pest Management) and organic farming.
These first certifications for the Moroccan territory lay the basis for a wider dissemination of biocontrol products in Morocco and Africa.
