MustGrow’s signature mustard-derived bio-pesticide product in "granule format" is EPA-approved for use in fruits, vegetables, nuts, turf and ornamentals. Organic compounds found in mustard seed form the active ingredient – utilizing the plant’s natural defense mechanism as a natural bio-pesticide and bio-fungicide. MustGrow has concentrated the active ingredient in both granular and now liquid format (the “Liquid Formulation”) to maximize safety and efficacy – a key milestone for growers seeking a "natural biological" alternative to "chemistry-based" products, some of which are dangerous to human health. The advanced Liquid Formulation may be applied through standard drip or spray equipment, improving effectiveness, economics, functionality and performance features.
MustGrow’s Liquid Formulation has achieved 100% control of hard-to-kill soil borne diseases such as Botrytis and Fusarium. To determine economic viability of the Liquid Formulation, the lowest effective application use-rates have also been tested: >95% control was achieved at rates as low as 2.5 gal/acre. This rate is believed by MustGrow to be an economically-feasible application rate in major fruits, vegetables, turf, ornamental and some broad acre farming operations.
The following product pipeline table outlines the advancement progress of MustGrow’s Liquid Formulation in applicable crop protection categories:
MustGrow’s intellectual property suite is a platform for several crop protection categories, aiming to disrupt global agriculture markets that have traditionally been dominated by chemistry-based products. MustGrow views these crop protection categories as significant opportunities, given the substantial market sizes and the applicability of our Liquid Formulation in these categories. MustGrow’s existing patent portfolio protects both method-of-use and composition-of-matter claims for MustGrow’s signature mustard-derived approach to controlling unwanted pests and diseases.
