Some soil fungi are natural born killers and the Institute of Sustainable Horticulture at Kwantlen University plans to put that talent to work for agriculture.
Institute for Sustainable Horticulture
Kwantlen's Institute for Sustainable Horticulture (ISH) is a partnership of academia with B.C.'s horticultural industries and the community to support British Columbia in meeting demands for a higher level of sustainability and environmental responsibility from horticulture, silviculture, forestry, and urban landscapes.
The Bio-Controls Research Group works in a leading-edge research facility on Kwantlen's Langley Campus where they focus on the development of microbial insect pathogens (fungal and viral) which will provide growers and landscape care providers with biological solutions to pest problems and help improve the sustainability of our agri-food systems.
