Andromeda launches biopesticide containing three microorganisms

Andromeda has launched Protege, a fungicide/nematicide for soybean and sugarcane crops, in Brazil. The product contains three microorganisms, Bacillus thuringiensis, Bacillus belleus and Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, which use different mechanisms of action to control nematodes and protect productivity.

According to the Brazilian Society of Nematology (SBN), nematodes cause up to $6.65 billion in crop losses in Brazil each year. Andromeda believes that synthetic pesticides used in combination with biopesticides are more useful for crop management. Andromeda plans to begin selling Protégé in the second half of 2022 and expects the product line to generate $50 million in revenue over the next five years.
