- Agriculture > Case Study: Herbicide Thaxtomin A

Goal:
Identification of new pesticides of natural origin.

Development:
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.

Results:
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.
