Dr. Robb Fraley of Monsanto and Dr. Thomas Vidabaek of Novozymes report on progress for the BioAg Alliance

On Monday, Novozymes and Monsanto leaders highlighted how the companies’ BioAg Alliance is working to develop innovations for agriculture to boost productivity and further support the management of natural resources on the farm. The Alliance is expected to expand the research and commercialization of a new generation of microbials to help farmers meet the world’s demands for food and feed in a sustainable way.

Microbial-based solutions are derived from various naturally-occurring microbes such as bacteria and fungi. The BioAg Alliance is researching the next generation of microbial technologies, and has already introduced two types of microbial products: inoculant products, which help plants take up nutrients, and biocontrol products, which help protect plants against pests, disease and weeds.

  1. This field of microbiology is pretty awesome, specially the point about natural control and manage of production wastes..
    Why don´t you also try look for in appropriate conditions microbes with sets of enzymes (lyases and oxi-reductases) with properties to break down phenolic compounds. it might be to helpful to break down pesticides, plastic (hypothesis) and also hemi-celulose.
