Teaching of Biopesticide Development as a Technoprenuership Opportunity in Plant Protection

Nur Amin


Plant protection is an important and integral part of an agricultural production system. Plant pests and diseases can cause yield losses on farm, ranging from 25 – 40% with a value of about US $550 billion worldwide. Excessive use of synthetic pesticides has caused detrimental effects on the environment and rendered agricultural production system uneconomical.  Therefore, biopesticide is a promising alternative control measures in plant protection. This article discusses the teaching of technopreneurship of biopesticide with several topics of discussion, including: introduction to and the importance of biopesticide, demonstration of biopesticide development, formulation, intellectual right, and commercialization of a new biopesticide product.
