The efficacy of microbial control agents depends on the production, formulation and application strategy. Therefore, we develop methods for the production and formulation of selected microorganisms. In addition, microorganism-based application strategies are developed and aspects of optimizing the environmental stability are taken into account. These activities represent the interface between research, producer and user of biocontrol agents.
