MustGrow’s Key Programs and Catalysts:
Bananas / Fusarium wilt TR4: MustGrow has commenced testing of its biopesticide in Colombia to tackle the disease Fusarium wilt TR4, a devastating disease pathogen ravaging the $25 billion global banana industry. Currently, there are no effective treatments for infected banana plantations which can cause 100% yield loss. MustGrow’s highly-anticipated initial data is expected Q4-2020.
Non-Selective Herbicide: MustGrow has filed key patents and announced proof-of-concept data related to a biological non-selective bioherbicide (weed killer), a timely development, as market-leading herbicides face high-profile legal and regulatory challenges. A series of application rate tests achieved herbicidal control after only 72 hours – killing the plants from the root up. Additional program advancements are expected Q4-2020.
Canola / Clubroot Disease: MustGrow has confirmed in soil and on plants an over 98% control of Clubroot spores in 24-hours. Clubroot is a rapidly-spreading disease pathogen destroying canola, one of Canada’s more profitable crops. Once a field is infested, there are no economical control measures currently available, with some field infections leading to 100% crop loss.
The World is Ready for Biopesticides
Widely-used synthetic chemicals continue to be banned or deregistered globally. The U.S. EPA promotes and encourages the use of safer pesticides, requiring much less data to register a biopesticide. The European Commission is seeking to halve the use of chemical pesticides by 2030. Leading agriculture companies have recently established venture capital programs to fund, partner or acquire early-stage technologies focused on biopesticide & bioherbicide crop protection. Research firm Markets and Markets sees the global biopesticide market size doubling to US$8.5 billion by 2025.
MustGrow is a publicly traded (CSE: MGRO) (OTCQB: MGROF) (FSE: 0C0) agriculture biotech company focused on providing natural science-based biological solutions for high value crops, including fruits & vegetables. MustGrow has designed and owns a United States EPA-approved natural solution that uses the mustard seed’s natural defence mechanism to protect plants from pests and diseases. Over 110 independent tests have been completed, validating MustGrow’s safe and effective signature products. The product, in granule format, is EPA-approved across all key U.S. states and by Health Canada’s PMRA (Pest Management Regulatory Agency) as a biopesticide for high value crops such as in fruit & vegetables. MustGrow has now concentrated a liquid format, TerraMG, and with regulatory approval, could be applied through standard drip or spray equipment, improving functionality and performance features.
The Company has approximately 37 million basic common shares issued and outstanding. For further details please visit www.mustgrow.ca.
