CABI caught on camera – natural pesticides and Himalayan balsam

CABI has produced two YouTube videos highlighting the work of our scientists:

Following in Darwin’s footsteps: unearthing Chile’s hidden world
Two crop protection scientists from CABI embark upon a journey to extreme environments in Chile. They are on a mission to find fungi and nematodes that could be used to make natural pesticides.

In search of biological control agents for Himalayan balsam
CABI scientists travel to India searching for biological control agents to combat Britain’s devastatingly invasive weed Himalayan balsam (Impatiens glandulifera). The plant is native to the Himalayan range making this the perfect place to study the natural interactions between the plant and its environment.
