Bernard Blum Award for Novel Biocontrol Solutions

IBMA is very proud to announce a unique opportunity to call for nominations from the industry for novel biocontrol solutions that will make an impact on this rapidly growing market.

IBMA will award a trophy, interview and product placement in New Ag International and 2BMonthly publications, as well as complementary registration and an exclusive area to display the winning innovation at ABIM 2016, the premier global biocontrol industry event.

It is expected that the winning entry will have a high impact in management of pests or diseases whilst having a low impact on human health and the environment.

As with our winning entry from Vestaron in 2015, there will be a permanent linking of the winner and their contribution to our industry with our founding father Bernard Blum whom the award and trophy is dedicated to again in this 21th anniversary of the formation of IBMA as an association.

Nominations for this prestigious new award should be provided to Isabelle Pinzauti Babrzyński at isabelle.pinzauti@ibma-global.org prior to 31st July 2016. Please fill in the form to be downloaded below.

The judges will be looking for innovative products with the benefits mentioned.
The target(s) should be mentioned as well as the method of application.
The product should be effective and acceptable to users and distributors. It can be for any crop or also for use outside agriculture.
