Marrone Bio Innovations’ CEO to Address European Biopesticide Industry at Informa Life Sciences Biopesticides Conference

DAVIS, CALIF. (PRWEB) December 03, 2012

Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. (MBI) a leading global provider of natural pest management products for the agricultural and water treatment markets, will present at the Informa Life Sciences’ 2nd Annual Biopesticides Conference in Berlin, Germany on Dec. 5 and 6, 2012. MBI CEO Pam Marrone will open the conference with “A Critical Analysis of the Biopesticides Industry,” including her perspective on the state of the industry, the advantages and disadvantages of biopesticides, current challenges facing the industry and the future outlook. Additionally, Marrone will examine the biopesticide discovery process targeting nematicides and herbicides on Dec. 6 with specific examples of new products in the MBI pipeline.

“Over the last decade, the use of biopesticides has increased significantly due in no small part to improved performance and safety, reduced residues and shorter and less costly development process,” said Marrone. “Though the industry continues to face regulatory challenges for registration worldwide, biopesticides are increasingly becoming an important part of overall pest management programs as their performance matches that of chemical pesticides. This is leading to current expectations that biopesticides will significantly outpace the growth of chemical pesticides in the next few years to reach $3 billion by 2014,” continued Marrone.

The Informa Life Sciences Annual Biopesticide conference is a two-day event with more than 100 industry attendees ranging from small and medium-sized biopesticide companies to large multinational agrochemical organizations including Monsanto, Becker Underwood, Syngenta and more. The event will deliver a comprehensive review of the biopesticide industry, including the diverse regulatory environment through the eyes of various European agencies.
