AgBiome recently announced its Zio™ fungicide has been approved by the EPA. This new biological fungicide will be marketed by SePRO and was developed by AgBiome, Inc. “SePRO’s knowledge of the turf and ornamental market and expertise in commercializing products make them the perfect partner to bring our first product to these markets” says Ted Piatt, Sales Director at AgBiome Innovations. Zio™ effectively controls economically important and problematic pathogens. This novel fungicide has multiple modes of action, no special storage requirements, and is OMRI-listed.
Zio™ is the first product from AgBiome’s pipeline which has several fungicides and insecticides in development. “Our ever-growing collection of sequenced microbes, combined with AgBiome’s proprietary screening capabilities, results in unique and powerful discoveries that will benefit horticulturists, landscapers, nursery operators and turf professionals,” says Dr. Lee Simmons, AgBiome Innovations Technical Director.
