Biocontrol for robust protection against pests

Our biocontrol products protect your crops against the insects and diseases that can damage your business. They consist of microbes, notably bacteria and fungi, that target pests to keep your crops healthy. Pests can become resistant to chemicals over time. Our microbial solutions are better suited to avoiding this challenge. They help protect high-value crops.

Actinovate® is a biological fungicide that suppresses root rot. It works by damping-off fungi and other foliar fungal pathogens. In that way, it helps you suppress a broad range of soil and foliar fungal diseases. With multiple modes of application, Actinovate® is a flexible fit in all production systems. It also has multiple modes of action, leading to lowered risk of developed resistance. It helps you produce and protect high-value crops.

Protection from soil-borne and foliar disease

Protection from soil-borne and foliar disease

The active ingredient in Actinovate® is a naturally-occurring bacterium called Streptomyces lydicus (strain WYEC 108). This colonizes the plant root system and protects it from harmful fungi. Actinovate® can be used as a spray, soil drench or seed treatment. When used as a soil drench or seed treatment, the product controls soil-borne fungi. These include Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, Pythium, Phytophthora and others. When used as a foliar spray, it controls foliar diseases like powdery mildew, botrytis and sclerotinia.

A powerful partnership gives farmers a new tool

A powerful partnership gives farmers a new tool

In 2012, we joined forces with the leading science-based agtech company Syngenta. Syngenta has global market strength and a commitment to bringing novel technologies to market. We have a deep knowledge of biological solutions. By bringing these strengths together in a synergistic partnership, we were able to develop and market Taegro®. Now, farmers around the world have a new microbial tool to help them sustainably fight crop diseases and reduce yield losses.
