Using micro powder technology to deliver friendly fungi to grain
A £270k grant from Innovate UK has helped Hampshire-based Exosect develop a safe and effective treatment to protect grain in storage against infestation. It uses an innovative micro powder technology - that mimics the fine wax particles on the surface of carnivorous plants - to deliver a naturally occurring biological pest control agent derived from a fungus found in grain stores.
