MustGrow Biologics Corp. is a private agricultural biotech company developing and commercializing specialized technology in the form of a natural biopesticide and bio-fertilizer that offers a much more palatable option for cannabis and fruit and vegetable growers that are unable to use synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. MustGrow’s novel, proprietary technology utilizes organic components refined from the mustard seed, leveraging the plant’s natural defense mechanism as a pre-plant/pot soil bio-fumigant/treatment to control soil-borne pests and diseases (http://nnw.fm/4RF4u).
The global fruit and vegetable market, along with the legal cannabis sector, is clearly ready for a proven product that certifies as an organic solution to an age-old problem for growers. Most plant-parasitic nematodes feed on the roots of plants, damaging the root system and reducing the plant’s ability to absorb water and nutrients. Damage from soil-borne parasitic nematodes causes about $100 billion in lost crops per year, with nematodes being responsible for up to 20 percent loss in certain fruit and vegetable crops (http://nnw.fm/SoK3S).
MustGrow’s technologies provide nematode control that is equal and often superior to synthetic alternatives, resulting in elevated yields and increased returns for the grower. Continued use of modern synthetic crop protection products can create a resistance to these conventional products among pests. Advancements in integrated pest management solutions, along with an increase in organic farming, is expected to push the biopesticides market beyond $6 billion by 2023, ResearchandMarkets reports (http://nnw.fm/cwlF2).
MustGrow’s biopesticide has U.S. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and Canadian PMRA (Pest Management Regulatory Agency) labels as an approved organic solution. The company is also seeking approval to add cannabis as an accepted use, both in the U.S. and Canada. MustGrow’s research shows that when its product is used as a pre-plant/pot soil treatment, it may significantly help control many soil-borne diseases, pathogens and pests, including nematodes, fusarium, rhizoctonia and botrytis (gray mold) that affect the cannabis plant.
To date, the company has successfully completed more than 110 independent third-party field trials of its products. MustGrow is at the forefront of development of unique solutions to help fruit and vegetable growers and cannabis growers control pests and crop diseases.
