Syngenta Crop Protection acquires bioinsecticides from UK's Bionema

Share this article

Syngenta Crop Protection AG has acquired two bioinsecticides, NemaTrident and UniSpore, from Bionema Limited, UK.

Syngenta Crop Protection is acquiring the patents and trademarks for both products, and the UniSpore registration dossier, and will have full global development and commercialization rights for the assets.

UniSpore is based on a naturally occurring microorganism (insect pathogenic fungus), and offers a solution for vine weevil control in ornamentals, where growers across Europe have limited insecticide options. It is currently in the early registration process.

NemaTrident is a patented, insect pathogenic nematode solution effective against leather jackets and other pests. The tri-component solution incorporates Nemaspreader, a biocompatible surfactant, which is already available to customers. NemaTrident is also used in horticulture and forestry to control a number of damaging insects.
