IBMA, the voice of the Biocontrol Industry

The International Biocontrol Manufacturers' Association (IBMA) is the worldwide association of biocontrol industries producing microorganisms, macroorganisms, semiochemicals and natural pesticides for plant protection and public health.

Alternative, biological and non-chemical plant protection has become an important issue worldwide, in order to correct the negative impact and the risks associated with the extensive and often inappropriate use of conventional chemical pesticides.

Based on long years of intensive research and development, the "Biocontrol industry" is growing fast and can offer safe and cost- effective solutions to society.

IBMA was created in 1995 to represent the views of these biological control producers, which are mainly small companies with limited resources: Manufacturers, research organisations, extension services, consultants, distributors, all contributing to the development of biocontrol and participating in IBMA activities.

IBMA is an association active on many levels:

We proactively defend our members points of view on a political level, share our expertise with them and our members.

With members throughout the World, IBMA is a worldwide organisation for biological crop protection, sustainable soil management, animal health and public hygiene.

IBMA participate in the activities of international organisations such as OECD, FAO, WHO, the International Forum for Chemical Safety, the European Commission, etc…

IBMA actively seeks to form a global federation of likeminded regional associations and have already formed a working link with BPIA in North America.
