With a grant from the Swedish government, SLU runs the Centre for Biological Control (CBC), which, with a focus on pest control with living organisms, contributes to a sustainable use of biological resources. CBC is a competence driven actor in biological control, both nationally and internationally.
Research at CBC
CBC develops knowledge about biological control, to use living organisms to control pests.
We aim to build a strong research environment in biological control and work closely with related research at SLU aimed at the development of sustainable pest control methods. We interact with stakeholders in government agencies, businesses as well as organizations.
Our main research areas
- Nematodes in biological control
- Biodiversity and conservation biological control with insects and arachnids
- Fungi in biological control
- Chemical communication between plants, microbes and insects
- Safety and regulations
