Details of the Innovation Need

Diamondback moth (DM) being the main pest of rapeseed (canola) farms in the Central and Northern regions of Kazakhstan during the early arrival of warm temperatures multiplies in large quantities. Mostly farmers use chemicals, which makes it difficult to export (and sell) rapeseed products (in particular in China). Another problem is that DM also quickly moves from neighboring fields which lives no chances of effective control by every individual company.

Third problem is that DM has the ability to develop resistance to pesticides, forcing organizations to constantly look for new chemicals. Forthly, in DM lifecycle the stages of its transition are a pupa-caterpillar-butterfly transition, and on the farms all stages can be found at the same time. The rate of destruction of the crop can reach up to 4 weeks.

Scale of the problem: all rapeseed (canola) farms of the Republic of Kazakhstan. On average in central and northern regions yield loss is around 30-40%, with intensive use of chemistry. There are farms where the impact reaches 70%.
