- Agriculture > Case Study: Herbicide Thaxtomin A

Identification of new pesticides of natural origin.

Our collaboration with Dupont has given rise to 19 potential compounds, which were subsequently licensed to Marrone Biosolutions. The first herbicide produced out of this collaboration is Thaxtomin A.

In 2013 Thaxtomin A got a sales authorization approval from the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Its specificity as a herbicide for rice endows it with very special characteristics and will give it a highly distinctive value on the market.
