AgBiome receives 2016 Innovation Award

AgBiome was recently named a most innovative startup by AgFunder as part of its Innovation Awards, a program created to recognize companies introducing transformative technology to drive agriculture forward. The awards are the first of their kind to recognize leadership in agri-tech innovation from around the globe, according to a press release.

AgFunder, a leading online ag investment platform, introduced the inaugural awards program last year. The winners were based on peer nominations from its global network of 25,000 and spanned novel crop inputs, robotics and AI, supply chain efficiency, precision ag and more. AgBiome was one of 23 companies to be awarded in five categories, and one of five recognized in the “Most Innovative U.S. Startups at Series A and Beyond” category.

AgBiome’s proprietary Genesis discovery platform, which includes the world’s largest microbe collection, has identified multiple field-active microbes that target both foliar and root diseases of major row crops, according to the company. AgBiome, through its go-to-market business unit Innovations, is introducing its first commercial product in 2017. This biological fungicide controls a broad spectrum of soil-borne and foliar diseases and demonstrates efficacy levels as good as leading synthetic chemical fungicides, according to AgBiome.
