RNAissance Ag is developing technology that enables that use of interfering RNA (RNAi) as a new defense against insect pests. This bee and butterfly safe thin sprayable insecticide can drastically reduce the need for toxic chemical applications.
RNAissance Ag’s RNAi technology aims to improve water quality and reduce environmental impacts associated with the use of toxic chemical insecticides. This RNAi allows precision pest management of the target insect without detrimental impact on beneficial non-target organisms. This technology has the ability to reduce the roughly 6 billion pounds of insecticides applied each year, in turn improving water quality around the world.
