Biocan technologies cannabis Pest management solutions

Cultivar development with an emphasis on fungal disease resistance traits

Unlike increased THC content, natural resistance traits for fungal diseases such as powdery mildew and botrytis infections have not been selected for in the collection of contemporary cannabis ‘strains’.

BioCan Technologies is developing purpose driven cannabis cultivars that have natural disease resistance traits for indoor, greenhouse, and outdoor cultivation methods.

Compared to over 611 different products registered for use on soybeans or 1559 for use on tobacco, there are currently only 20 pest management products registered for use on cannabis plants in Canada

The lack of pest management products available is a direct result of researchers not being able to access the cannabis plant to evaluate the efficacy of the pest management products and to understand the associated health and safety aspects to the consumer.

BioCan Technologies is leveraging its scientific expertise and experience in registering products with Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) to provide effective tools to cannabis cultivators.
