Share this article

AgBiome, Inc.’s newest product, Theia fungicide, has received approval from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Theia fungicide, developed through AgBiome’s GENESIS platform, is the second proprietary AgBiome crop protection product to be marketed.

AgBiome states Theia fungicide delivers broad-spectrum foliar and soil disease control through multiple modes of action, including fungicidal and bactericidal metabolites, and is OMRI Listed. It provides control on diseases such as powdery mildew and Fusarium in high-value fruit and vegetable crops.

AgBiome’s Howler fungicide, launched in 2019, provides control against a broad-spectrum of soilborne and foliar diseases. AgBiome states Theia fungicide complements Howler fungicide with distinct modes of action and the ability to perform against additional key disease targets.

U.S. state registrations are pending, and growers can expect Theia fungicide to be available for purchase through AgBiome’s retail partners later this year.
