One specific objective is to create a new, plant oil-based ULV formulation containing S-methoprene active substance suitable for post-harvest indoor application on cereal seeds in closed grain stores to achieve long-term preventive control of stored grain attacking insect infestations.

 Another specific objective is to assess complex behavior of the formulation and the active substance in living organisms and in the ecosystem and predicting environmental fate by studying biological effects on target and non-target organisms, performing detailed analysis on physico-chemical properties and metabolic, toxicological and ecotoxicological profile and testing efficacy in the laboratory and under simulated-use and practical (field) conditions.
