AgBiome’s biofungicide Howler™ approved in U.S.

AgBiome recently announced that Howler™ fungicide received registration from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The first product to be marketed by AgBiome Innovations and developed by AgBiome Inc., is a biological fungicide that is highly effective against fungal diseases common to high-value crops.
 
“This is great news for specialty crop growers,” says John Rabby, AgBiome Innovations commercial director. “Howler provides preventive, long lasting activity on a broad spectrum of soilborne and foliar diseases, with no special handling or storage required.”
 
OMRI-listed for use in certified organic production, Howler is exempt from the requirement of tolerances in the US. Howler can be used effectively at every phase of crop production with a zero-day pre-harvest interval (PHI) and a four-hour, restricted-entry interval (REI).
 
“Howler fights disease with three modes of action – metabolic, enzymatic and exclusion by competing with invading pathogens,” says Steve Ronyak, field biology manager for AgBiome. The active ingredient actively destroys pathogenic fungi, stops fungal development and protects plant surfaces.

State registrations are now pending.
