Over the past 50 years, crop protection has relied heavily on synthetic chemical pesticides but 15

in pest populations. Therefore, alternative pest management tactics are needed. Biopesticides 17

proven potential for pest management and they are being used across the world. However, 19

market entry barriers by imposing burdensome costs on the biopesticide industry. There are 21

Union, a greater emphasis on Integrated Pest Management (IPM) as part of agricultural 23

opportunities for developing biopesticides in IPM by combining ecological science with post- 25

bring with them new regulatory and economic challenges that must be addressed through 27

joint working between social and natural scientists, policy makers and industry.
