Pheronym-Treated Nematodes Three Times More Effective in Attacking Agricultural Pests

UF Innovate alumni startup Pheronym, an ag-biotech pest control company, announced the results of a second peer-reviewed study demonstrating the efficacy of their patented Nemastim™ pheromone extract for bioremediation of agricultural pests. In a joint study with the USDA and the University of Idaho, nematodes treated with pheromone extracts increased their effectiveness in invading host insects in soil by 300 percent. Additionally, the nematodes improved their rate of attack within four hours of treatment.

“Third-party research continues to prove the extraordinary efficacy of our approach to neutralizing agricultural pests through bio-remediation,” said Dr. Fatma Kaplan, CEO of Pheronym. “The full commercialization of Nemastim™ will put this powerful tool in the hands of the agricultural community.”
