Biocontrol technology to be released by Nutrien Ag Solutions

Nutrien Ag Solutions is planning to release new biocontrol technology designed to help growers improve yields.

Nutrien Ag Solutions has acquired Suncor Energy’s AgroScience assets that offers proprietary biocontrol technologies through its Loveland Products business.

“We’re excited to further develop this new technology which is expected to help accelerate Loveland Product’s efforts in delivering a broader range of solutions that aim to help maximize yields,” Casey McDaniel, vice president of Loveland Products, said in a news release. “As the biocontrol market grows, we believe farmers will increasingly demand bio-based solutions that work within existing management practices to achieve bottom-line benefits in yield and efficiency and support efforts to improve sustainability.”

The new chlorin-based photosensitizer formulations are expected to launch in certain markets by 2025. Product submissions to the EPA in the U.S. are anticipated by 2026. Nutrien Ag Solutions is set to market these products as part of the Loveland Products portfolio, according to the release.

Nutrien Ag Solutions is part of the Loveland, Colorado-based Nutrien Ltd. Nutrien is a large global provider of crop inputs and services, helping growers sustainably increase food production. Nutrien produces and distributes more than 26 million tonnes of potash, nitrogen and phosphate products.
