AgBiome Innovations entered into a new business partnership with SePro to develop a new biological product for the turf and ornamental market. The first product, a broad-spectrum fungicide, is expected to be available for applications in early 2017, according to the companies.

“Our ever-growing collection of sequenced microbes, combined with AgBiome’s proprietary screening capabilities, results in unique and powerful discoveries that will benefit horticulturists, landscapers, nursery operators and turf professionals,” said Dr. Lee Simmons, AgBiome Innovations technical director. “SePro’s knowledge of the turf and ornamental market and expertise in commercializing products make them the perfect partner to bring our first product to these markets.”

The new biological fungicide to be marketed by SePro was developed by AgBiome through its Genesis discovery platform. This fungicide is a biopesticide with the performance of comparable synthetic chemical solutions and will be Organic Materials Review Institute certified, AgBiome said.

“At SePro, we’re always looking for partnerships that will help solve our customers’ challenges in an innovative and sustainable manner,” says Mark Brotherton, portfolio leader, SePro “Our partnership with AgBiome Innovations continues that trend. The AgBiome discovery and development platform is unlike any we’ve seen, and we are excited to introduce this new technology to our customers.”
