Seeking: New microbiological biocontrol agents

Natural control of pests. Image (c) Microsoft Inc.

Many microbiological organisms are utilized to effect control of plant, fungal, and insect pests. We are seeking new microbiological approaches for the control of major agricultural or fungal pests. These microbial agents may be active or dormant state in storage, but must have efficacies comparable to commercial pest control standards when applied.

We are seeking micro-biological approaches to new pesticides. These naturally-occurring organisms include bacteria, fungi, yeast, and protozoa; and will have unique modes of action, while providing commercially acceptable levels of control on specific target species such as weeds, insects, bacteria, fungi, nematodes, viruses, and other crop pests.

Currently, we are not seeking approaches that include genetic engineering or genetically modified organisms (GMO), although selective breeding for effect is acceptable, we are not seeking viral or macrobiological approaches (i.e. insects), and we are not seeking parasitic macroorganisms nor are we seeking botanical extracts.

You should be able to cite the theory, literature and mechanism of the key components of your microbe or approach. Ideally, your solution will have accompanying proof-of-principle, effectiveness data (especially any field-effectiveness data you may have), and toxicity data.

There should be an identifiable, continuing, and substantial natural supply of the substance (preferably from several sources); or, there should be a way to breed or incubate an organism, if that is your approach.

Your proposed solution should be shelf-stable for a minimum of two years.

Compatible with commercial exipients having a wide range of physical/chemical properties (e.g. melting point, solubility, volatility, etc.)

Proposals should contain some or all of the following:

  • A description of your capabilities and the type of business arrangement sought.
  • Suggestions about how to validate and assess your technology.
