Research overview:
Although insects are thriving covering 80% of creatures on the earth, only very special species are bred and used such as silkworm or honeybee. Recently excellent behavioral functions and multiplication/adaptation ability of insects are noticed and application studies of these functions are propagating. In the agricultural field, investigation on the prevention of diseases and pests using natural enemy insects based on the function of insect or microorganisms preserving natural ecological system, development of growth accelerating technique using substances produced by life defense functions, and further, application to life science and pharmaceutical production technique. In this study, prevention technique that controls living number of harmful insects is established by biological prevention using natural enemy insects or microorganisms without depending on agricultural chemicals.
