Global contamination by agricultural materials, such as chemical fertilizer and pesticide, is causing a critical danger to continued existence of life. Introduction of environment- friendly biological pesticide, instead of conventional pesticide, and establishment of new farming system is essential. For this purpose, research collaborators in our Global Partner universities in Indonesia, Vietnam, and Peru and experts in Japanese industrial world are actively engaged in international cooperative research in the following fields.
- Control over disease and pest insects utilizing microorganism
- Pest control utilizing natural enemy
- Search for photogenic pesticide and its utilization
- Alternative farming systems
