AgBiome®, Inc., a leader in global microbial innovation, announced that Theia® fungicide has now been approved by state regulators in California for use on specialty crops. Theia fungicide is the second proprietary solution from AgBiome approved in the state that provides robust, broad-spectrum protection against a variety of soilborne and foliar diseases in high-value fruits and vegetables.

″California growers continue to look for effective and sustainable solutions that protect their crops from detrimental diseases,″ said Adam Burnhams, AgBiome chief commercial officer. ″Theia fungicide’s approval in California gives growers a new tool that offers excellent control of a variety of diseases such as powdery mildew and fusarium.″

Theia fungicide protects crops through multiple modes of action by blocking fungal and bacterial pathogens and activating crops’ natural defenses. The biofungicide contains the active ingredient Bacillus subtilis strain AFS032321. Theia fungicide received EPA approval in June of 2022 and is registered in 49 states.

Theia fungicide is a product of AgBiome’s in-house GENESIS™ discovery platform, with the original microbe discovery, sequencing, and product development all being led by AgBiome’s team. Theia fungicide follows Howler® fungicide, AgBiome’s first biofungicide registered for use across the U.S.

″Our goal has always been to create effective crop protection products,″ said Dr. Brooke Bissinger, Theia fungicide product manager for AgBiome. ″We are excited to have Theia fungicide available to support growers in California as they deliver high-quality fruits and vegetables across the world.″
