Symborg has acquired Glen Biotech, a startup from the University of Alicante (Spain) providing biocontrol solutions for agriculture.
Using the technology from Glen Biotech, which is centered around the fungus Beauveria bassiana 203, Symborg will develop new products that provide farmers with the biological mechanisms to control pests.
Beauveria bassiana 203 has high potential for pest control, specifically the red palm weevil, a pest that primarily affects palm trees.
Glen Biotech is currently in the process of registering an active substance used in plant protection products to maintain healthy plants free of insects in Europe, the United States, and other countries in North and South America.
