MustGrow Announces Non-Selective Bio-Herbicide Patent Filing and Supportive Efficacy Claims

MustGrow Biologics Corp., an agricultural biotech company developing and commercializing a portfolio of natural, science-based biological crop protection products, announced the filing of patents related to method-of-use and composition-of-matter claims for a biological non-selective bio-herbicide, based on MustGrow’s signature mustard-derived approach to controlling unwanted pests and diseases.

MustGrow has completed a series of application rate tests with Canada’s National Research Council to determine the applicability of MustGrow’s natural mustard-derived technology as a bio-pesticide. Using multiple application methods, herbicidal control was achieved after only 72 hours – controlling the trial plants from the root up. This strong data validates MustGrow’s natural science-based approach, utilizing the mustard seed’s natural defence mechanism, not only as a bio-pesticide, but also as a bio-herbicide.

MustGrow’s intellectual property suite is a platform for several crop protection categories, aiming to disrupt global agriculture markets that have traditionally been dominated by chemistry-based products. This filing enhances MustGrow’s current patent portfolio covering many crop protection categories.  MustGrow’s existing patent portfolio protects both method-of-use and composition-of-matter claims for MustGrow’s signature mustard-derived approach to controlling unwanted pests, diseases, and now weeds.

“The efficacious properties of our active ingredient as a bio-pesticide, bio-nematicide and bio-herbicide represent a key milestone for MustGrow,” remarked MustGrow COO Colin Bletsky.  “MustGrow has plans to further expand our data set and focus testing on hard to kill and herbicide-resistant weeds as well as to expand applications of our remarkable natural mustard-based technology.”
