Biological solutions for the control of pests and diseases present a fast-growing segment of AgriTech and offer a sustainable alternative to chemical pesticides. This is particularly important as more chemicals are being withdrawn from the market due to their toxicity, leaving growers helpless in the fight against a growing number of crop pests and diseases. The WBF is founded on the belief that, by creating the connections that allow individuals and companies to take biological technologies forward, the sector can successfully provide the solutions needed to fill the gaps left in the market by withdrawn toxic chemicals.

The WBF is a non-profit organisation for encouraging collaboration across the biocontrol industry and academia. It was founded by Dr Minshad Ansari in 2019 to facilitate the successful development and commercialisation of novel biological control products for agricultural pests and diseases.
