Julius Kühn-Institut, Institute for Biological Control

The Institute for Biological Control in Darmstadt is the only research institute in Germany where the full spectrum of disciplines in biological control is covered. Therefore, it plays a key role in the development and evaluation of plant protection methods based on the use of natural antagonists of plant diseases and pests (especially damaging insects and mites). We consider naturally occurring micro-organisms, viruses, insects, mites, and nematodes as antagonists.

Another main focus of the institute is the development and evaluation of natural products to combat plant pests, as well as the exploration of plant strengtheners that enhance the natural defense mechanisms of plants.
