Bernard Blum Award 2018 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 for ABIM 2019 and the 3 shortlisted finalists will have a poster to display their innovations at ABIM 2018, 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, Agrauxine Le Saffre in 2016 and CBC Europe in 2017, 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 23rd anniversary of the formation of IBMA as an association.

Nominations for this prestigious new award should be provided to Isabelle Pinzauti BabrzyƄski from IBMA at prior to 15th July 2018. Please fill in the form (download here)
