FBSciences sets up plant protection unit

The US life sciences company, FBSciences (Collierville, Tennessee), has recently established a plant protection division. It will focus on the commercialisation of products utilising proprietary, naturally occurring plant growth regulator (PGR) technology. The technology influences genetic responses that improve plant health and productivity in a range of agricultural and horticultural crops, the company points out. FBSciences expects to receive US registration of its first PGR in the second quarter of 2011. The EPA has assigned the PGR technology a new class of biopesticide chemistry, the company notes.
