The aim of the International Biofumigation Network is to help facilitate the development and refinement of sustainable biofumigation and other allelopathic techniques for reducing pests, weeds and diseases of arable and horticultural crops.

The objectives of this website are to:

  1. Create an interactive, open, international register of researchers, growers, suppliers and advisors who are involved with crop protection using biofumigation
  2. Develop an online resource on all aspects of biofumigation by providing links to published work, relevant websites and others involved in this sector
  3. Produce a quarterly electronic newsletter reporting on relevant developments and upcoming events
  4. Promote academic interaction between member subscribers through a series of specific subject forums
