Unfortunately, current solutions to protect crops against disease are becoming increasingly inefficient. Additionally, the use of synthetic agrochemicals is a concern for both human and environmental health.
Zymtronix, with our sister company Agrynex, has developed stabilized enzymes as ingredients for crop protection products that deploy a naturally occurring antimicrobial system to protect seeds. This broad-spectrum system is effective against bacterial and fungal pathogens, weakening the threat with no, or fewer, chemicals. Stabilized for tunable control and synergistic with existing actives, our solution bridges the gap between conventional and organic, keeping us at the forefront of biotechnology for crop protection. Furthermore, Agrynex products can be successfully co-formulated with existing crop protection products to enhance their activities while reducing the doses, mitigating the risk of resistant pathogen populations emerging.
ZymPure seed cleanser is a dry formula that can be solubilized in water to quickly cleanse whole batches of seeds. As a seed disinfectant, ZymPure sanitizes seeds at room temperature, in minutes, to kill a broad spectrum of bacteria and fungi without affecting the viability of the seeds.
Immobilized biocidal and fungicidal enzymes allow controlled release of potent antibacterial free-radicals onto the seeds.
ZymPure effectively protects your seeds simultaneously against a broad spectrum of bacteria and fungi. Our solution works at low concentrations of enzymes and drastically reduces the need for chemicals, protecting against resistance over time.
We are looking for partners and collaborators as we bring ZymPure to the agriculture market. Contact us for more information.
ZymGuard seed coating formulation can be applied to batches of seeds to protect them and reduce losses. The coating shields the seeds with a layer of biocidal and fungicidal enzymes that protect the seed right through to planting and germination.
When combined with antibiotics (center dot), ZymGuard prevents the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
ZymGuard kills all bacteria as compared to the control (bottom right quadrant).
ZymGuard fully controls this damping-off pathogen in-vitro (right plate) compared to the control (left plate).
ZymGuard drastically reduces the growth of this fungal pathogen (right plate) compared to the control (left plate).
The ZymGuard seed coating covers seeds with a layer of immobilized and stabilized enzymes. The antibacterial and fungicidal properties of our formulation protect the seed and then disperse into the surrounding soil after planting to protect the seedling during germination. ZymGuard can be co-formulated with existing biochemicals for enhanced protection.
