Ensuring biological protection of crops for a healthy and sustainable agriculture
2010 SEED Award Winner Sustainable Agriculture Fada N'Gourma, Burkina Faso

The initiative’s ambitious goal is to promote and distribute ecological pest control for organic crops, especially cotton, vegetable and oil-producing crops. In this way, the partnership of local and community-based organisations and research agencies hopes to increase yields and preserve the production environment.

Eco-Inclusive Impacts

Bioprotect provides with a pest control alternative for organic crops without harming farmer's health or the environment.
  • Creating new employment opportunities in the sector.
  • Organising training in new techniques of agricultural production; increasing yields in agriculture and reducing food insecurity.
  • Reducing health problems related to use chemical pesticides.
  • Improving the quality of the production environment by ensuring the use of non-polluting products.
  • Protecting aquatic resources by reducing the pollution of surface waters by crop treatment.
  •  Raising awareness on the use of eco-friendly agricultural techniques.
  • Increasing income and reducing the expenditure of plant health.
  • Creating secondary income for craft units for compost production enriched with Trichoderma.
