Laboratory for mass rearing and application of insect and mite natural enemies
The Head of the Laboratory – Zhanna Shirinyan
The Laboratory develops programs directed at agrocenosis self-regulation processes based on the newest methods including leading activation and mass reproduction of entomophages natural populations with the help of attractants, entomophilous plants and feeding grounds. It develops the technologies of insects’ mass propagation on artificial nutrient medium for the formation of entomophages, viruses, nematodes and herbiphages. It conducts taxonomic research, educes and estimates entomophages natural resources for new bioagents formation. It evaluates GM plants efficiency and biosafety.
