A new biopesticide has been approved by the US EPA that can be used as an insect repellent. It is manufactured from the catnip plant that is currently cultivated throughout the world. The first step of this project will be to evaluate the interest and infrastructure of Burundi to cultivate catnip and manufacture the biopesticide. The budget for the entire project may be on the order of $20 million. An international conference will be held in Burundi from October 14-16, 2010 to initiate the project.
