AgBiome, Inc., a leader in developing innovative products from the earth’s microbial communities, announced that their newest product, Theia fungicide, has received approval from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Theia fungicide, developed through AgBiome’s GENESIS platform, is the second proprietary AgBiome crop protection product to be marketed.
“Today, we are one step closer to bringing growers of high-value crops yet another extremely effective disease management tool,” said Dr. Toni Bucci, chief operating officer for AgBiome. “This registration and impending commercial launch are proof of AgBiome’s ability to fulfill our promise of innovating to enhance the global agricultural ecosystem.”
Theia fungicide delivers broad-spectrum foliar and soil disease control through multiple modes of action, including fungicidal and bactericidal metabolites, and is OMRI Listed. With excellent control on diseases such as powdery mildew and Fusarium that have the power to devastate high-value fruit and vegetable crops, Theia fungicide is poised to become an important disease control solution for growers.
State registrations are now pending and growers can expect Theia fungicide to be available for purchase through AgBiome’s retail partners later this year.
