MustGrow Biologics Corp. (CSE: MGRO) (OTCQB: MGROF) (FRA: 0C0), an agriculture biotech company focused on providing natural science-based biological solutions for high-value crops, has announced successful test results of its patented mustard-derived biopesticide on Aphanomyces euteiches zoospores (“Aphanomyces”). The tests, conducted via an independent third-party facility, achieved 100% control of the root-rot disease Aphanomyces zoospores at economic application rates within 24 hours; Aphanomyces is a soil-borne disease that destroys key plant-based protein crops such as peas, lentils and legumes; current treatments are unable to control the disease. MustGrow next plans to test its proprietary biopesticide in larger-scale greenhouse and field settings. The company’s safe and effective organic biopesticide is plant based, using the mustard seed’s natural defense mechanism to control diseases, pests and weeds. Aphanomyces is a water-mold pathogen that destroys peas, lentils and other legumes, which are often referred to as pulse crops. Studies indicate that at least $20 million of pulse crops are lost annually in Canada as a result of Aphanomyces; worldwide that figure reaches $100 million. “It is great to see MustGrow’s mustard plant-based biopesticide continue to perform, particularly with 100% disease control measured at exceptionally low application rates,” said MustGrow COO Colin Bletsky. “The level of control of hard-to-kill diseases we continue to achieve combined with the beneficial properties of our product for soil health provide a great opportunity for improved yields for farmers and a more robust food supply. I am very hopeful that we can potentially provide a valuable crop-protection tool for pulse crop farmers.”
