Man letting soil fall through his hand

We are interested in...

Novel small molecule chemicals that may be used to control weeds, plant diseases and pests such as insects and rodents

Such as...

  • Molecules acting via novel modes of action (e.g. by interacting with novel target proteins) ​
  • New ways of achieving biological effects (e.g. targeted protein degradation) ​
  • Non-cidal approaches for example plant immune stimulants ​
  • Molecules that overcome existing pest resistance 
Offering choice to our customers through the development of biological agents that can be used to control weeds, plant diseases and insect pests, and also biological agents that can enhance tolerance to environmental stresses, enable lower levels of water or fertilizer to be applied, or which improve performance by activating natural processes in the plant
  • Biological agents may include natural chemicals, extracts and lysates, semiochemicals, biopolymers (such as proteins, peptides and nucleic acids), and living microbes (such as bacteria or fungi)​
  • Technologies that can control insect pests and fungal diseases​
  • Products that optimize fertilizer efficiency​
  • Products that can enhance the robustness of crops to heat and drought stress​
  • Natural extracts that can boost crop yields

We are interested in...

Digital technologies that help our customers be more productive

Such as...

  • High precision and robotic application systems that enable highly targeted placement of inputs such as pesticides and fertilizer​
  • Methods of monitoring potential weed, pest and disease infestations before they become obvious​
  • Sensors for monitoring environmental and soil conditions​
  • Analytical and predictive modeling methods that enable growers to translate data and information from the field into actionable insights to improve performance
