- Agriculture > Case Study: MARRONE

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.

Thaxtomin A Herbicide. Authorization for its sale was requested from the EPA in 2010 and it is expected to be approved this year. Its specificity as a herbicide for rice endows it with very special characteristics and will give it a highly distinctive value on the market.
