Biopesticides are crop protection products based on living micro-organisms or natural products. Microbial biopesticides have a history of use in the biological control of insect pests and include bacteria [mainly various strains of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)], entomopathogenic fungi (e.g., Beauveria bassiana and Metarhizium species), numerous species of baculovirus, and also entomopathogenic nematodes. Biopesticides are a valuable emerging tool with tremendous promise for controlling challenging insect pests and ENDORSE aims to improve the efficacy of selected entomopathogenic fungal biopesticides whilst safeguarding the long-term resistance management of these products.

This project is  a joint Newton funded international partnership between the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) in the UK and the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) in Brazil under BBSRC award reference BB/S018956/1 and FAPESP award reference 2018/21089-3
