Alternative solutions that naturally safeguards crops against pests and diseases.
Biopesticides are natural alternatives to chemical pesticides used to manage agricultural pests and diseases. Biopesticides are produced using micro-organisms that are derived from natural sources, such as plants, bacteria, certain minerals and other organic matter, which make them safer to use then chemical pesticides. They also, break down quickly causing less environmental pollution, and unlike chemical pesticides that affect birds, insects and mammal, biopesticides only affect target specific pests and related organisms.
At Smart Microbes our innovative approach and proprietary processes allows us to develop and produce natural biopesticides products formulated using beneficial micro-organisms to protect crops against pests and diseases.
Classes of Biopesticides
A natural derived substance used to control pests by interrupting the mating or using scented plant extract to attract the pests to traps. However, synthetic pesticide will kill the pest instantly and have toxic effective on the environment.
Are made from microorganism such as, bacterium, fungus, virus or protozoan and function as a biocontrol agent. Microbial pesticides works to control many kinds of pests and depending on the ingredients used, it will be specific to the targeted pest.
are pesticidal substances produced by when genetic material added to the plants usually through genetic engineering when a specific Bt pesticidal protein is introduced into the plant genetic material.The plant in turns controls pests by producing the pesticidal substance when it is under pests infestation.

Metarhizium anisopliae is a fungus that grows naturally in soil and works like a natural guard against insect pests, such as thrips, mites, whiteflies, ticks, weevils and aphids and helps to eliminate these pest wherever they are present by overpowering pests by germinating over their bodies causing them to die.
Beauveria bassiana is a naturally growing fungus in soil. The fungus is a natural defense nature uses to control whiteflies, thrips, aphids, mealy bugs, and a host of arthropod species. It is very potent to eliminate destructive insects that devastatingly infects/kills plants and crops.
Bacillus thuringiensis Subsp. israelensis (Bti), is a natural soil bacteria found in our environment. Bti acts like a natural trap for fungus gnats larvae and will effectively eliminate fungus gnats larvae.
Hirsutella thompsonii is a natural fungus existing in our environment. This particular fungus is a natural enemy to russet mites, spider mites and other various mite pests that are of agricultural importance because of their destructiveness to plants and crops
HOW WE CAN HELP?
Our collection of naturally deprived microorganisms is used in varying markets, to help protect crops against pests and diseases.
OUR AREAS OF SPECIALITY
Trichoderma is a genus of fungi that is the most prevalent fungi found in soil all over the world. The fungi is highly adaptable, making it ideal to use in different environments. Trichoderma species of fungi also has dual advantages for growers. It is a biocontrol agent for varying plant pathogens, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and nematodes, and a plant growth promoter that colonizes plant roots for the added advantage of survival.
At Smart Microbes our collection of Trichoderma fungi includes Trichoderma harzianum, Trichoderma viride and Trichoderma virens. With our trio of Trichoderma we are able to formulate unique and viable Trichoderma biocontrol solutions for agriculture.
This particular strain of the Trichoderma fungi is able to colonize most plants roots and established itself as a rhizosphere. It is used a biocontrol agent during crop production to prevent soil-borne diseases such as, Fusarium, Phythium and Rhizoctonia and other pathogens from colonizing the soil, to keep plants from the harmful diseases.
Trichoderma viride is especially viable to economically important crops as a biocontrol for seed and soil-borne pathogens, such as, root rot, seedling disease, charcoal rot , wilt, collar rot etc. It is also, promotes vigorous plant growth by various mechanisms.
A beneficial plant fungus which enhances biomass production and promotes lateral root growth. Trichoderma virens forms a very effective relationship with plants, not only as a growth promoter, but as a biocontrol agent usefully in controlling pathogens, such a damping-off disease common in greenhouse production.
