We are developing technologies for the control of the new complex mite-fungus-bacteria, which has recently been found in Central America and Colombia, caused primarily by Steneotarsonemus spinki–Sarocladium oryzae. In turn, this indirectly contributes to sustainable rice production by increasing yields and grain quality, reducing costs, slowing environmental degradation caused by excessive use of pesticides, which ultimately promotes profitability and competitiveness of the crop.
