Bioproducts Development

The incorporation of bioproducts in the agricultural industry is key to strengthening and diversifing this sector, which should be more productive and sustainable. For example, in the face of pests that become increasingly resistant to traditional agrochemical treatment, new options, such as using the same microorganisms of agricultural land to cover and protect the seeds and therefore promoting the growth of crops. UC Davis leads applied research in fungi, bacteria and nematodes for development, formulation and scaling of new bioproducts for agriculture in the future.
