Corteva wins exclusive license for new sustainable biofungicide

Corteva says it will expand its partnership with life sciences company Elemental Enzymes to include an exclusive license to a new biofungicide for row crops including soybeans, cereals, corn, oilseeds, rice and sugarcane, as well as turf and ornamental applications.

Corteva says the technology uses a naturally occurring 22-amino acid peptide to alert plants to invading pathogens, which primes its immune system and helps the plant protect itself from fungal diseases, such as Asian soybean rust and wheat head scab.

The company anticipates the global launch of the new Holzem biofungicide to begin in Latin America in 2022 and the U.S. in 2023.
