Biological Control

Renuka do Brasil utilizes natural enemies to control the population of pests of great economic importance, avoiding damage to the ecosystem. They have their own entomological laboratory where Cotesia flavipes wasps are produced to attack borers. To combat root leafhoppers, Mahanarva fimbriolata, which make their home in the leaf from the cane plant, a fungus called Metarhizium anisopliae is applied in areas in which there is a high incidence of this insect in the canefield.
