Kris A.G. Wyckhuys, PhD, CEO - Chrysalis Consulting - Nature-based solutions for plant health developed a toolkit to pinpoint eventual obstacles in biological control science, policy and practice globally: https://ee.kobotoolbox.org/single/2f600fb244fae967ab0bc79fec53aa15.
He invites you to fill out this (brief) online survey which aims to gauge country-level capacities and needs for biological control science, policy and practice.
Supported by FAO's Plant Production and Protection Division (NSP), the BiCCA toolkit has been specifically designed to pinpoint opportunities to advance biological control science, its farm-level implementation and further scale-out. The survey focuses on the deployment of living organisms against target pests, weeds and pathogens in man-made or natural habitats, integrated as appropriate with compatible measures such as behavior-modifying semiochemicals, botanicals or microbial metabolites.
The survey is structured modularly - completing any of its (4) constituent sections should take no longer than 10 minutes. The aim is to have all survey responses in place by January 15, 2024.
