Founded in 2007, the Brazilian Association of Biological Control of Companies (ABCBio), is the only employers' association of biological pesticides in Brazil. Its mission is to bring together companies. The association aims at the modernization and professionalization of its sector, with active participation in the construction of regulatory frameworks.
Association of Natural Biocontrol Producers
ANBP is a professional association representing the biological pest management industry. Augmentative biological control utilizes beneficial insects, mites and nematodes to manage agricultural, horticultural and plant pests. ANBP membership includes producers, distributors, and in addition, users of natural enemies as well as allied industry supporters, university researchers, extension agents and regulatory representatives.
ANBP's mission is to address key issues of the augmentative biological control industry through advocacy, education, and quality assurance.

BPIA is dedicated to fostering adoption of biopesticide technology through increased awareness about their effectiveness and full range of benefits to a progressive pest management program.
The united voice of farmers and their cooperatives in the European Union.
