Share this article

Plant Health Care PLC has partnered with Nutrien Ag Solutions to launch its Saori soybean seed treatment in Brazil.


Saori, used for the prevention and treatment of Asian soybean rust, is the company's first product from its PREtec platform to be commercialized and is the first PREtec peptide approved in Brazil. PREtec peptides represent a novel class of technology which stimulate the plant to defend itself. Derived from natural proteins, PREtec is an environmentally friendly approach to protecting crops and is compatible with mainstream agricultural practices.

Saori will be made available this season by Nutrien Ag Solutions on a limited basis to leading soybean growers, with wide adoption within Brazil expected to take place during the 2022-23 season and thereafter.
