AgroSpheres is transforming crop protection with AgriCell, a powerful enabling technology for the efficient and improved use of synthetic chemicals and biologicals. AgriCell can mitigate the direct and indirect detrimental effects of chemical pesticides, with the goal of cutting their use by at least 50 percent. Collaborating with Drs. Dilip Shah and Kirk Czymmek from the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, AgroSpheres will investigate AgriCell interactions with host plant and pathogen cells, and explore whether encapsulating anti-fungal peptides increases their pesticide applications.
