Professor Jae Su Kim is one of the most advanced researchers in Korea in microbial-based pest control research. Through his research on microbial pesticides, which began in 1999 when he graduated from Seoul National University's Department of Agricultural Biology, Professor Kim developed a product that can control gizzard worms, the biggest problem in crop production, and commercialized it in 2017 as a product called Chongchaessak. This product sold out three times in the first year of its release, making it the biggest success story in the domestic eco-friendly market so far. At the same time, he deciphered the entire genome of the insecticidal microorganism ERL836 for the first time in Korea, creating an opportunity to understand the molecular biological insecticidal mechanism.
In addition, he is focusing on research that can control aphids, mites, moths; the forest pest Monochamus alternatus, which can spread serious wilt nematode; and Haemaphysalis longicornis and mosquitoes that spread diseases. These pests can be controlled with existing organic synthetic pesticides, but if environmental problems are considered, research and development of safer control are urgently needed. Therefore, Professor Kim's research focuses on the safe lives of residents through eco-friendly pest control. This is why his research is drawing attention in the era of carbon neutrality.
