biopesticides

Bio-pesticides are naturally occurring beneficial microbes, such as fungi and bacteria, which have been isolated, tested and mass-produced as a crop protection agent.

Real IPM (Kenya) produces a range of biopesticides which have been Registered for use in a number of African countries. Our biopesticides are priced to allow prophylactic preventative programmes to be applied. This means that they are capable of replacing 50% of the chemical applications, even in crops as sensitive to damage as roses. Biopesticides are not the ‘soft option’. They provide growers with the tools to manage resistance to pesticides, fill in the gaps created by banned chemical pesticides and respond to retailers who must have reduced chemical residues.

We have begun the process of registration in the EU and hope to obtain an OECD data package in the near future. Once this process is complete, we will be able to use this to make our biopesticides available in any country worldwide. The in-country registrations will only need local efficacy trials before they can be fast-tracked into use by growers.

REGAIN

Mazao REGAIN® is a bio-fungicide containing Bacillus subtilis for the control of Powdery Mildew.

Bacilllus subtilis is a ubiquitous gram-positive bacterium. It is isolated from the soil and formulated as a bio-fungicide for the control of powdery mildew. In addition, Mazao Regain contains…

SUSTAIN

Mazao Sustain® is a bio-pesticide formulated from Trichoderma asperellum for the control of soil borne pests. Trichoderma asperellum is ubiquitous, non-virulent beneficial fungi, present in the soils and other diverse habitats.

In addition, Mazao Sustain contains properties that increases root volume and promotes plant growth hence classified as a bio fertilizer.

ACHIEVE

Mazao ACHIEVE® is a contact bio-insecticide composed of one isolate of the entomopathogenic fungus, Metarhizium anisopliae ICIPE 78.

It infects and kills pest mites. It has negligible harmful effect in beneficial predatory mites.

SUPREME

Mazao SUPREME® is formulated as pure spores of the insect pathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae strain ICIPE 62 used to control Aphids.

Metarhizium anisopliae ICIPE 62 is an insect-killing fungus that occurs naturally in the soil.

CAMPAIGN

Mazao CAMPAIGN ® is composed of spores of the insect pathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae strain ICIPE 69 and is used to control Whiteflies, Mealy bugs and Thrips.

Metarhizium anisopliae strain ICIPE 69 is a ubiquitous, insect killing fungus from the soil.

TICKOFF

Real IPM (Kenya) has a unique relationship with the international research institute in Kenya (ICIPE) where the research on our Metarhizium isolates has been carried out over many years. Real IPM has global rights to isolates of Metarhizium 69, Metarhizium 78 and Metarhizium 62, and Metarhizium 7, which have economically important insect pest targets.
