- Agriculture > Case Study: MARRONE

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:
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.
