A precise biotechnology for a lasting protection of your crops

 Our patented molecular tool facilitates the identification of Phytophthora root rot variants from field sample, making resistant soybean varieties selection a simple cost-free decision.

Make science-based decisions

Reduce yield losses

Identify a potential of 200 disease variants

Planting crops should not be a gamble !

85%

of Canadian soybean growers are using soybean varieties that do not have the right gene resistance to Phytophthora root rot.

10 years

Pathogen spores can persist in your field for up to 10 years. On a 500-acre farm, these spores can cause between $13 and $300 K in yield losses in any given year. 

Phytophthora root rot

  •  Caused by Phytophthora sojae
  • Phytophthora root rot is the main root rot pathogen in soybean and is particularly difficult to identify
  • This disease costs American growers nearly $500 M in losses each year
  • Affects plants from the seedling stage to full maturity
  • Seed treatments only protect your crops in the first weeks of the season
  • Yield losses can reach 100% if the soybean variety used is not suited to the disease variants present in the field

Selecting the soybean variety that has the right resistance gene (Rps gene) gives you the best protection against specific disease variants in your fields, from planting to harvest.

The key is to know which one to choose!

The right soybean variety to fight off your specific Phytophthora root rot variants

    Our patented and unique molecular tool will detect which Phytophthora root rot variants is present in your fields.

    Make science-based decisions

    Our technology helps growers, agronomists and crop consultants to eliminate guesswork when choosing resistant soybean varieties.

    Reduce yield loss

    The use of resistant varieties is the best way of defending against this disease and helps soybean growers to fight the yield losses attributed to Phytophthora sojae across the corn belt each year.

    Stay ahead

    Variants of the disease are constantly evolving. This is why our R&D team carries out an epidemiological watch that monitors new variants.
