Description: Founded in 2000 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(6), the Biopesticide Industry Alliance (BPIA) serves its members through activities focused on our mission and purposes: Mission: Drive the acceptance and commercialization of biopesticides Purpose: • Promote industry standards for biopesticides among member companies. • Communicate the value of biopesticides in markets we serve (including organic crop production, livestock handling and handling and processing). • Collaborate with regulatory authorities to ensure timely, predictable, transparent and appropriate registration and regulatory requirements (including organic standards). • Be there leading source of information to key influencers who impact acceptance, commercialization and adoption of biopesticides.
Products / Services: BPIA’s member companies offer biological pesticides (often also referred to as biorationals) as means of controlling pesticide of crops, livestock and in food processing, institutional, home and industrial settings. Biopesticides provide a wide range of benefits to growers, packer/shippers, food processors, and food retailers, as well as consumers. In addition to food uses, biopesticides may also contribute protection of turf, ornamentals, and forests. They are also useful in the realm of public health where they can be used for disease and nuisance management, i.e. mosquito and tick control. While human health benefits tend to be indirect, the benefits of using biopesticides in agricultural application tend to be more direct. Topping the list are benefits to crop quality and yield, which help growers deliver healthy and affordable fruits and vegetables to consumers around the world. Through their highly targeted modes of action, biopesticides also allow growers to maintain beneficial insect (natural predator) populations in their fields, reducing the grower dependence on conventional chemical pesticides.
